    Product Description

    Be better prepared at your next appearance in court!

    Practice in the District Court has become more challenging with new statutes, recent appellate decisions, and greater scrutiny by the media. Judges have dealt with the issues they face in various ways, and they are given broad discretion to do so. This program identifies the factors which the panelists consider in reaching decisions, and includes practice tips for the attorneys on both sides of the case.

    Attorneys from all experience levels benefit from hearing directly from the judges in this fast-paced format. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain invaluable insight into the judicial perspective, and be better prepared the next time you walk into court!
