The Med Mal Trial: Developing Your Winning Theme

March 20, 2014

(available end of April 2014)

3 CLE Credits

Seminar Overview:

This seminar is all about the Med Mal trial. And the best Med Mal lawyers USE THEIR THEME TO WIN.
As a trial attorney, you need to cultivate and develop the theme of your case. We’ll show you how to develop your theme, how to use your theme to develop a relationship with the jury, and how to present it in a way that will have jurors respecting you and rooting for your client.
We’ll give you the following tools:
- How to tell a winning story
- Strategies on how to captivate a jury (during selection, opening, and closing)
- How to tell your story during the cross of the defendant
- How to get the defendant expert to give you departures
We’ll also share the defense perspective and court’s opinion on what works and what doesn’t.
