Fundamentals of Trial Sessions
For attorneys who have never tried a case before judge or jury, or who have limited courtroom/trial experience and want to strengthen their skills before the next hearing or trial.
TSI 100 INITIAL INTERVIEW OF THE CLIENT; FACTS AND INVESTIGATION
TSI 101 CREATING A CASE THEORY
TSI 104 OBJECTIONS: HOW TO LIMIT THE PROOF AT TRIAL
TSI 105/106 MECHANICS OF EFFECTIVE DIRECT OR CROSS EXAMINATION
This is a two day program designed for a busy law office, and dedicated to giving each attorney the basic and fundamental skills of trial advocacy. There is no prep work required.
Each section is a half day session combining lecture and practice for the individual attorneys. Printed materials as well as case problems will be provided. Attorneys will be up on their feet before mock judges and adversaries, and question mock witnesses.
For the law office that can't spare the time for two full days in a row, we can provide a single, four hour session on the topic of your choice, and can provide other sessions as needed or requested on the date of your choice.
Each four hour session comes with an introductory lecture as well as printed materials and case or evidentiary problems. No preparation is needed.
FUNDAMENTALS I PLUS:
TSI 102 EFFECTIVE OPENING ARGUMENTS
TSI 107 HOW TO STRUCTURE AND DELIVER A PERSUASIVE CLOSING
TSI 108 THE END GAME: AFTER YOU CLOSE, WHAT NEXT?
This is a four day program that goes deeper into all of the aspects of trial advocacy, and is designed as a mini-trial encompassing every mode of advocacy. While no prep work is required, it is a more intensive experience as attorneys prepare for the "trial."
When signing up for this package, lawyers can choose between a civil or criminal "trial," in either state or federal court. The case materials, including mock exhibits, will be provided and the case will be "tried."
and Bring Your Own Case Workshop
In addition to four hour sessions on all aspects of trial skills, TSI will provide, upon request, one-on-one skills training tailored to the particular needs of the attorney - whether for an actual case being prepared for trial, or for general mastery of particular skills.
