Every attorney in their career makes mistakes. However, good attorneys will learn from their mistakes and the mistakes of others. George Washington once said, “To rectify past blunders is impossible, but we might profit by the experience of them.”
In this seminar we will look to profit from the blunders of other attorneys. We will review the O.J. Simpson trial and other trials, both real and reel (film clips) to determine errors that attorneys made both inside and outside the courtroom and how we can learn from those mistakes. We will review blunders related to technology, courtroom demonstrations, expert testimony, pretrial preparation, pleadings, cross-examinations, and arguments of counsel.
Further, Marcine Supelak, an award-winning professional graphic designer, will explain how to create the perfect PowerPoint for trial that will impress both judge and jury. We will also review cases where courts have reversed verdicts because of the improper use of PowerPoint.
