Strategic Pretrial Advocacy Workshop 2022

Product ID: CA3292D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Trial without error

Cases can be won or lost before you even get to trial, and the vast majority of cases never even make it to the courtroom. That’s why effective pretrial advocacy and preparation are key to a favorable disposition. It is the rigor of pretrial preparation – outlining, reworking, and revising your strategy until all the pieces come together in a plausible, credible whole – that sets you up for a successful resolution.

At theStrategic Pretrial Advocacy Workshop, we’ll use a hypothetical case to create a trial strategy and a roadmap for litigation. Discover new ways to frame your case from the outset in order to achieve the best results. You’ll leave with a winning game plan for your next trial at this innovative and engaging CLE.
