Most lawyers, even "litigators," have never tried a case before a jury. The thought of trying a jury trial can be daunting. New admittees to the bar, experienced practitioners who have been dodging jury trials, lawyers in small firms which reluctantly refer their trial work to outside trial lawyers, or associates and younger partners in major law firms who are positioning themselves to catch a case for trial will learn exactly how to conduct a jury trial by attending this course. 
 
The course will provide participants with the  inside track on trying a civil case  before a jury. Aspiring trial lawyers will learn each sequential step required to conduct a civil jury trial.  Join experienced trial lawyers and judges as they discuss best practices, tried and true techniques, ethical considerations, and different practice styles. Attendees will learn about each step to take from trial call to post verdict motions. Topics will range from pre-trial motions, jury selection, distinguishing exercise of informed bias from unlawful bias, opening statements, direct and cross examinations, closing arguments, and post-trial motions. A comprehensive syllabus will be provided to each course participant.
