Trial Prep/Trial Tactics
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 a trial. Others have had to rely on law school mock trials and text books along with their own instincts to get them through it- hopefully with more trial than error. In Trying Your First Case you will be guided through the anatomy of a civil jury trial from the basics of trial prep, to the intricacies of summations and post-trial motions. This will be an 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.Expand summary
