Civil Trial—Practical Help (1.5 Credits in Skills)
A civil trial is a vast topic that is broken down not only into the type of
substantive trial, such as personal injury, matrimonial, commercial, etc., but
also is broken down into its many stages, such as jury selection, opening
statements, direct examination, etc. The
purpose of this session is to provide an attorney who has never tried a case
before with some practical knowledge about the real-world events and circumstances
that happen at or surrounding trial and typically are not discussed in law
school textbooks, case law or put into statutes.

a.m. – 11:10 a.m. Preparing Prenuptial Agreements for Young Professionals (1.0 Credit in Skills)
agreements are like regular contracts, but require very particular formalities
in order to be effective. Considering all of the issues involved requires an
understanding of domestic relations law as well as estate issues. Prenups are
not only for the wealthy. In fact, many forward-thinking young professionals
are planning ahead for their financial futures with just as much attention to
detail as to their wedding planning. This session will outline the basics of
drafting prenuptial agreements, with a particular focus on the issues through
the lens of young professionals.
