Course Description

Necessary Skills for Litigating a Difficult Case will prepare counsel for the hazards of entering a courtroom, where surprises are the norm and the unexpected is usual. The course is taught by Carol G. Morokoff, a litigator with 29 years of experience (and the grey hair to match), using examples that have occurred to her and case law that has happened to other counsel.

 

Learning Objectives:

I.     Identify likely problems in advance

II.    Understand strategies for eliminating those problems pre-trial

III.   Develop strategies for coping in the courtroom

There was no fluff in this presentation. The presenter dove right into the subject and provided real world examples of dealing with clients, opposing counsel, judges and juries. And most importantly how to respond when things do not go as expected.
