Fried Goldberg Trial Skills Clinic
The Fried Goldberg Trial Skills Clinic is designed to teach less experienced practitioners the trial skills necessary to put together a case from Pre-Trial Motions through Closing Arguments and Post-Trial Procedures. We will be using video clips from our trials that were recorded by CVN to explain the process. Because we want to focus this seminar on helping less experienced lawyers, we are requiring that attendees, both in-person and by live stream, certify that he or she is a plaintiff’s attorney with 7 years or less experience handling plaintiff’s personal injury cases. If you do not think that you meet that criteria but still want to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will see if we can make an exception for you. Each session is approved for 2 hours of CLE credit (2 trial hours), and you can sign up for one session or multiple sessions. There is no cost to attend the CLE in person or view by live stream, but we expect that in-person attendance will be limited to less than 50 people. Fried Goldberg will cover the cost of CLE credits for in-state attendees, and all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance to use for out-of-state CLE credit.
Registration will open on May 15th
