Date: March 6, 2007
Start Time: 8:30 AM MST
End Time: 2:00 PM MST
Description: A Live Seminar and Demonstration Sponsored by: Persuasion Strategies and Holland & Hart
Your corporate defense case is headed for either trial or settlement. How strong is your case? Should your company settle now or move forward with a trial? The more information you have, the better.
At this unique CLE, you will see a mock trial in action. You will listen to both sides of a case, then watch and listen to jurors’ reactions to counsels’ arguments. You will also see how new technology has improved both the immediacy and the precision with which juror attitudes are measured.
Other seminar highlights:
• Learn the results of a 2006 nationwide survey on juror attitudes toward corporations
• Understand how the design, execution and strategic analysis of a mock trial can impact the results.

How to select the best outside litigator?
When the GC gets involved in selecting counsel, you know the matter’s important. Firms send their best closers for the dog and pony show, people who’ve won beauty contests before. But what should in-house counsel really be asking? Miracle worker and celebrated trial lawyer John Fitzpatrick gives you the hard questions that separate jury trial lawyers from everyone else. Learn what they are and how to get the answers you deserve. Better to learn them now than to have to explain to your Board of Directors how you missed asking them when you had the chance to do so.
