Get some great courtroom experience through the DBA Young Lawyers Division’s annual “day in court,” on June 22 from 1:30-5 p.m. This demonstrative program will include several “mock” witness examinations by experienced trial attorneys with critiques by a panel of judges. This program is designed to educate young attorneys on the do’s and don’ts of witness examination. Judge James R. Carrigan, and Denver District Court Judges Morris B. Hoffman and Paul A. Markson will give tips. The program takes place in courtroom C202 at the U.S. District Courthouse at 1929 Stout St. Four cles are anticipated.
