    Product Description

    Successful trial lawyers always tell novice attorneys that an excellent way to become a better trial lawyer is to sit in court and observe veteran trial lawyers in action. But have you ever sat in court and wondered why an attorney was pursuing a particular line of questioning? Have you ever wished that a seasoned litigator was sitting by your side and explaining trial strategy to you? If you have ever wanted to hear a trial critiqued by the experts, don't miss this unique opportunity to spend a “day in court” with veteran trial attorneys and a sitting Superior Court judge.

    Civil Trial Advocacy: MCLE BasicsPlus!® presents a one-day trial from start to finish. Each step of the trial is preceded by a brief narrative highlighting what is expected during that phase of the trial. After each segment, the faculty critique the attorneys’ performances. Instead of listening to lecturers present the dos and don’ts of trial advocacy, you actually have the opportunity to learn by observing the experts and benefit from the expert trial commentary provided by the panel of litigators and judges. Bring your questions to personalize the learning experience!
