Overview:

Preparing for a trial involves the strategic use of documents. Crafting a compelling narrative not only simplifies intricate legal arguments but also leaves a lasting impact that can influence decisions in favor of your client. Therefore, establishing a trial preparation strategy is critical, and it should begin to take shape during the document review stage.

Our speakers will explore effective cross-examination techniques, the art of presenting complex evidence in an understandable way, and the use of rhetoric to influence courtroom opinions.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • The Psychology of Persuasion
  • Visual Advocacy
  • Mastery of Oral Advocacy
  • Case Preparation and Organization
  • Ethical Considerations
