Hon. Waddell Wallace, Circuit Court Judge
Moderated by Blane McCarthy (Board Certified, Civil Trial Law)

Jury selection is the first, and arguably most important, activity in a jury trial. Learn from the judge’s perspectives the appropriate goals for jury selection and what techniques are effective toward achieving those goals.

Michael Drews (Board certified, Business Litigation)

Statistics suggest that a majority of jurors develop a leaning toward one party at the conclusion of opening statements, before any evidence is received. This lecture will discuss strategies that can be used to create and deliver an effective, credible opening statement that is persuasive without being argumentative. The audience will learn what amounts to a user’s guide for the standards, rules, and objections that apply to opening statements.

Robert Spohrer(Board Certified, Civil Trial Law)

Most cross examinations are more suicidal than homicidal. This lecture includes the intermediate and advanced techniques for an effective cross examination. Special emphasis will be on strategies and methods for controlling the "runaway" expert who evades questions and argues with counsel or insists on making speeches instead of answering the question. The concept of constructive cross examination will also be explored. That is, use of opposing witnesses, including experts, to develop positive substantive evidence for your case.

William J. Sheppard (Board Certified, Criminal Trial Law)

Closing arguments serve an important role in the trial, but that role may be different than what you’ve always understood. This segment will feature a general conversation on the topic, focusing on examples and techniques that help trial counsel end their case presentation most effectively.
