Trying Your First Case
Published by New York State Trial Lawyers Association

6.0 Skills credits

Every trial lawyer has had a first trial. Some had the benefit of "second seating" a more experienced lawyer and getting a front row seat to orient them to the process of trying a case. Others have had to rely on law school mock trials and text books and their own instincts to get through it - hopefully with more trial and error.

In Trying Your First Case you will be guided through the anatomy of a jury trial from the basics of preparation to the intricacies of summations and post-trial motions. This will be an in-depth orientation to all of the facets of trial and trial preparation with some veterans of the trial bar. Because even they had a first trial once.
