In the finest traditions of ABOTA, this seminar is dedicated to educating trial attorneys at all levels in the art of trial advocacy. Focusing on the key elements of the trial with particular attention devoted to professionalism, courtroom techniques and those subtle nuances that distinguish the average litigator from the extraordinary trial lawyer, this creative, fast paced program will build on your already proven abilities as a trial lawyer. Broader than the routine litigation seminar, this program will invigorate the way you approach and execute litigation.
