During this event, established criminal defense attorneys will speak about the mechanics of and demonstrate during sections on voir dire, opening statements, cross-examination, direct examination, and closing arguments.

All attendees will also be expected to practice these skills in small workshop groups and be given feedback from experienced instructors. This gives attendees an opportunity to work on their skills, try new tactics learned during the presentations, and receive feedback in a judgment-free and consequence-free environment. The case that all of the presentations will be based on will be provided to attendees ahead of time, but attendees are only expected to review the case information prior to the event.

Attendees should not prepare any of the practical portions prior to attending the workshop.  Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided for attendees as the event will occur between 8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Space is limited so RSVP today! Cost is $50.
