    Product Description


    Even in this era of the vanishing trial, there will always be a need for exceptional advocates and trial lawyers. Once, young lawyers learned their craft by apprenticing for senior lawyers and trying smaller cases on their own. Today, however, trials have become rare and expensive propositions. Up-and-coming trial lawyers now need to find new and creative ways to acquire the knowledge and skill required to be ready for the courtroom. Get the benefit of hearing dozens of tips and anecdotes from experienced judges who have spent thousands of hours in the courtroom hearing motions and cases, no matter what your experience level! 

    Join our moderator, veteran trial attorney Jennifer Mikels, and learn what this panel of Superior Court Judges want practitioners to know about courtroom practice and trial advocacy. The panel format allows the Judges to offer their insights on a variety of topics, while also hearing and responding to their colleagues. Don't miss this opportunity to gain invaluable insight into the judicial perspective and be better prepared the next time you walk into Superior Court!
