Coming Events

MAKING YOUR CASE: TRIAL ADVOCACY IN PROBATE COURT

Sure, you can spend Saturday morning at Ikea in search of the perfect bookcase (and wonder whether "Bøøkcäse" is really Swedish). We have a better alternative. This training program builds upon previously offered trial advocacy courses. It will be taught by an acclaimed trial advocacy professor, probate judge and expert practitioners, who will use a hypothetical to teach trial procedures and courtroom skills, such as making and opposing motions in limine, examining witnesses, marking exhibits, using demonstrative evidence, and more. Breakfast will be served.
