    Product Description

    Win your next case with MCLE’s Trial Preparation & Presentation Skills. This all-encompassing seminar provides an overview of the trial process. Civil litigators acquire practical advice on every stage of the trial process, from the earliest stages of preparation to the concluding presentation at trial. You learn key tips from jurists and expert litigators who know trial practice inside and out.

    The morning session covers successful trial preparation—the foundation of a successful trial.

    The afternoon session teaches you skills you need to present your case successfully. The faculty provide vital pointers on techniques that can make or break your case, from opening statements to closing arguments. With a high level of interactivity and the opportunity to get your questions answered, you get what you need to effectively present your next case—right from the start.
