4.5 CLE credits: 1.0 Ethics, 3.5 Skills

With the aid of movies, this seminar explores advocacy from pretrial preparation through closing argument. Trial work is theater work, and, from the movies, you can learn trial techniques for how to deliver your case theory in an interesting and convincing way that will engage your audience - the judge and jury. With clips from 4-star films, this presentation examines the strategic and ethical do's and don'ts of advocacy as well as the principles and practical tools for successful pretrial and trial practice. Along the way, attendees will learn about the real cases that inspired many of the films.
