Trial Management and Technology for the Litigation Team, is June 30. Today, successful litigation requires a precision litigation team. This program for both attorneys and paralegals presents the two most critical elements of a successful litigation team approach. First, the creation of a trial notebook that becomes the effective road map and game plan for the presentation of the case, providing guidance and reference points for each stage of the proceedings. Second, the mastery of the courtroom technology and electronic presentation that juries have come to expect.
