Who should attend: Junior litigators
Learning level: Fundamental
Are great litigators born or made? While natural ability and aptitude will get a young lawyer like you off to a good start, it’s not always enough. You need hard work and guidance—the right kind of guidance. First held in 2017, this is the second edition of our rave-reviewed course featuring a comprehensive review of the key elements of what it takes to excel as a junior litigator. You will learn about personal temperament, work ethic, writing, trial preparation, and trial advocacy. Let our panel of jurists and senior counsel be your team of mentors for an intensive day of learning on "how to be a great litigation junior."
After taking this course, you will:
- understand the skills and traits that senior counsel seek in a junior
- be in a position to avoid some of the hard lessons that junior litigators typically face
- ramp up your writing skills—a critical tool for all lawyers
- know what judges want to see from counsel, so you can be more effective in court
- understand what you need to do to become a better advocate
