The masters of the bar and the bench come together to share their valuable and useful insights on jury trials. We have assembled the most experienced and respected state and federal judges, as well as many distinguished litigators, to discuss their experience of what constitutes stellar advocacy when trying jury cases. There is no better way to learn about jury trial practice than from the attorneys who try the nation’s most important cases and the judges who preside over them.

Whether you are new to your career as a trial attorney or an experienced courtroom litigator, this course will give you a unique view into jury trials and the best way to handle them, from opening statements through closing arguments. Our faculty will also analyze the ethical issues that often arise and the best ways to handle these situations.
