10th Annual Circuit Court Boot Camp – Program 2:  The Nuts and Bolts Your Trial (IL) [Two-Part Webinar]

Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)

Important note: Due to Covid-19, we are now presenting this course as an online course. Other than attending the program online – everything stays the same and you will still be able to ask questions..

This dynamic and information-packed online course will teach you all about litigating in Illinois State Court. It will also teach you what need to know to be a successful litigator in any court.

Be sure to read the past attendee testimonials so you can really see what people think about the program (see the testimonials tab above).

We also have plaintiff and defense attorneys from large and small firms and solos, to make sure you get a variety of perspectives on each topic.

This really is a course you cannot miss if you are new to litigation or want a refresher.

In Part I, you’ll learn about all of the components of your trial, from the Final Status Conference, to your trial outline and Motions in Limine. Your faculty will provide you with advice and insight to help you deal with your juries: voir dire, jury selection, instructions and verdict form pitfalls.

In Part II, our faculty will discuss the actual trial – getting evidence admitted, the direct and cross examinations and objections. The program will end with a brief discussion about Preserving your Record for Appeal, and Post-Trial Motions and Judgments.

Our Circuit Court Boot Camps are great programs for newer attorneys or attorneys wanting to get the court’s perspective on effective litigation techniques.  If you are looking for a more advanced or in-depth course on specific topics, like depositions or jury selection, do a quick search in the right bar for those courses – past or upcoming.

The entire course is designed to teach you not only what you must do, but also how to do it. The faculty also helps you understand common or easily made mistakes and how to avoid them.

In fact, many large and medium sized firms send multiple associates each year to this program (and to our Federal Court Boot Camp), because they value the instruction and insight provided so much. (If you are from a firm that wants to send three or more attorneys, give us a call for an extra special discount).

 

Who should attend?

Newer attorneys and those new to litigation. Just graduated law school? – can’t miss it. You don’t get these skills and this practical advice in law school.

Has it been a long time since you’ve been in the courtroom or written a motion? This one’s for you as well.  And if you’re with a law firm – join many other large law firms and send your new associates each year.  Contact us for a multi-attorney discount for four or more attorneys.
