In cooperation with Judge William G. Young of the U.S. District Court, MCLE announces a unique dimension in continuing professional education for the trial bar. Judge Young offers an intensive fourteen-week, limited-enrollment program leading to confident, practical mastery of trial techniques and the law of trial evidence, both state and federal.
The program meets from 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Each weekly meeting concludes with an hour's observation of actual trials in progress (9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m.), followed in subsequent meetings with a careful discussion of the trial techniques and presentation. During the course of the program, participants also have the opportunity to discuss and observe firsthand motion practice, impanelment of juries, arguments concerning directed verdicts, closing arguments, and the judge's charge.
This intensive program is for the attorney seriously preparing for or engaged in an active trial practice. Since the program proceeds through active discussion and clinical courtroom observation, enrollment is limited to ensure the greatest degree of individual participation.
Learn the myriad techniques and procedures that emerge from thoughtful examination of theactual trial process. There is ample time for discussion of these and related matters. Program topics include:
