    Product Description


    NOTE: The date of the Orientation Meeting has been moved from Wednesday, 9/4 to Tuesday, 9/3. The time of the Orientation (4:00–5:30 pm) remains the same, as do all other dates and times. 

    On Trial with Judge Young is an unparalleled learning opportunity for the attorney who is preparing for or currently engaged in trial practice. Judge William G. Young of the U.S. District Court guides practitioners toward confident, practical mastery of trial technique and the law of trial evidence, both state and federal. Taking this course gives you a deep knowledge of the skills and experience required for trial practice—insight that can only come from an in-depth, expert examination of the actual trial process.

    In addition to a careful discussion of trial technique and tips, each weekly meeting includes an hour-long observation of actual trials in progress. Participants have the opportunity to discuss and observe first-hand motion practice, impanelment of juries, arguments concerning directed verdicts, closing arguments, and the judge’s charge. Since the program proceeds through active discussion in chambers and clinical courtroom observation, enrollment is limited to ensure the greatest degree of individual participation.
