Celebrating 30 Years of the Annual Institute of Trial Practice

We’re highlighting some of the best cases from the past ten years, so you’ll still have a chance to (virtually) immerse yourself in this unique mock trial experience. Each program will give you unique insights into every phase of trial from both the bench and the bar.

This year’s case involves a volunteer firefighter responding to a call late on a snowy night. On his way to the fire station, he slides through a stop sign and collides with another vehicle, severely injuring a passenger. There is dispute regarding the condition of the pavement, as well as the speed and control of both vehicles. Also at issue: whether the firefighter had a “habit” of running stop signs, and whether the other driver could see the firefighter’s vehicle approaching the intersection.

Immerse yourself in the pre-trial experience by watching How to Select a Jury: Demonstrations by Experienced Trial Lawyers. Watch as experienced trial lawyers voir dire potential jurors for the trial. Gain first-hand insight from veteran practitioners as they explain their reasoning behind the questions they asked, the strikes they made, and why they may have done it all differently in another situation.
