Announcing the 2018 Trial Ethics Summit
October 5-7, 2018 in Santa Barbara, CA
Sponsored by Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley/Trial by Human and Hosted by Ellen Pansky
This will be a summit unlike any you have ever attended.
Too often at CLE panels across the country, we hear bragging about past results, academic presentations, or lectures on what you cannot do in the courtroom. Often they are taught by lawyers who do not go to trial. It’s just not as useful as it should be.
At the 2018 Trial Ethics Summit, top trial lawyers will demonstrate and participants will then break into smaller groups to work on how to properly and ethically conduct your best Jury selection, opening statement, direct examination, cross examination, and closing arguments. This summit will arm you with real techniques and methodology that you can actually use in trial. Experienced Trial Judges will explain what is acceptable, unacceptable and why. In the end you will be better trained and prepared to creatively – zealously - passionately- but ethically – present each part of your case in a way that persuades, connects with, and never bores, jurors or judges. Participants will be expected to actually practice on their feet in a safe, but fun and exciting, forum.
Take advantage of this limited opportunity to try the things you have always wanted to try in court, but not sure how it would go in front of the judge. You will earn 16 MCLE credits (14.5 of which are ethics).
Lawyers who go to trial – or want to – from across the country are welcome.
In addition to the program, there will be time for socializing and relaxing. Bring your family with you. Make it a fun wonderful weekend in Santa Barbara during a beautiful time of year.
The 2018 Trial Ethics Summit starts Friday, October 5, 2018, and runs through Sunday, October 7, 2018. Registration includes one room Friday and Saturday nights; breakfast, lunch, snacks, and yoga on Saturday and Sunday; and the best CLE summit of the year.
