Taking the Lead: Winning Strategies and Techniques for Commercial Cases

This program will showcase methods of creating compelling opening and closing statements and direct and cross-examinations of witnesses through a re-enactment of an actual commercial trial.

The re-enactment will feature experienced women trial lawyers, including former Commercial and Federal Litigation Section  Chairs presided over by a former federal judge. The trial will be followed by a  panel discussion and critique by sitting justices who will share their observations, advice, and insights.

This program promises to be both entertaining and instructive, offering critical trial skills for all litigators at any level of practice.

Sponsored by the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section.
