Session 1: Findings of Fact Learn more than you ever thought you could know about Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law.
 
Session 2: ​Compensatory Damages on Appeal Examine recent appeals involving compensatory and “soft damages” to help you maximize or minimize those damages on appeal.
 
Session 3: Error Preservation Ambushes: Infliction and Prevention We can raise many complaints for the first time on appeal ... or when it is too late for the non-complaining party to do anything about it. These complaints involve jurisdiction, standing, summary judgment practice, experts, damages, the charge, and attorney's fees, just to name a few areas. Identify these areas, get suggestions about how to pre-empt your opponent from ambushing you with such complaints, and hear ideas about ambushing your opponent, while taking care to avoid a self-inflicted wound.
 
Session 4: Advocacy Practice and Theory for the New Millennium No one can deny the practice of law has changed dramatically in recent years, but many still advocate like it's 1999. Learn new tricks and tips on how to advocate effectively in today's courtrooms.

Session 5: Appellate Lawyers in Trial Court Examine the most effective and ineffective use of appellate lawyers during and immediately after trial.
