Educating lawyers in the art of trial advocacy is a primary goal of the Foundation of the American Board of Trial Advocates. The Masters in Trial shows how some of the most successful trial lawyers in the country conduct a trial – without war stories. All of the trial team counsel are ABOTA members and are well-known and highly respected in their fields.

Whether you are a novice or seasoned trial lawyer, plaintiff or defense counsel, this program will assist you in your next trial and trials thereafter. This seminar is designed to teach by example. The skills you see demonstrated are applicable to virtually every other civil case.

This is one seminar trial lawyers will be talking about. You don’t want to miss it. Come see how the Masters do it.

This is a full day seminar which will be streamed live over the internet so a reliable, high-speed internet connection is required to participate. Before registering, please check your internet connection at fast.com, to make sure the download speed on the computer you will be using is at least 5 mbps.
