Session 4:

Opening Statements and Closing Arguments—How Far Can You Go? (Dec 2017)

In today’s desensitized society, lawyers need to do more to convince juries to identify with their client and deliver a verdict in the client’s favor. Explore how lawyers can teach to all five of the jurors’ senses when using demonstrative evidence, and discuss effective strategies for opening statements and closing arguments—such as violating the Golden Rule and maximizing the use of the laws of primacy and recency—that practitioners can use to maximize the probability of winning the trial.

Session 5:

Ethics in Contracting Issues (Apr 2018)

Using hypotheticals, this presentation focuses on a number of ethics issues that might arise in contracting situations. Can lawyers take advantage of privileged communications the adversary inadvertently sends them? Can lawyers receiving electronic documents look for hidden metadata the other side has not scrubbed? What duties do lawyers have in representing contracting parties, with regards to disclosing client confidences to prevent the adversary from being deceived about the clients' intent, or to correct the adversary's misunderstanding about the law, the contract's terms, or the adversary's scriveners error?
