Opening Statements and Closing Arguments [00:58:45]

How do you prepare and deliver opening statements and closing arguments that propel jurors to the result you want?  This session, which relies on real world examples from opening and closing statements, will discuss how you can persuade jurors through the use of storytelling and visual illustrations, even when your trial presents abstract or technical concepts.
