Americans have a reputation for being the most litigious people in the world. Yet fewer tort lawsuits are filed each year as more cases settle.1 So where can an aspiring trial lawyer obtain essential courtroom experience?
The State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® and the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) partner every year to bring the courtroom to you. Join us for the 28th Annual Institute of Trial Practice.
Learn from the examples of fifteen veteran trial attorneys as they argue a case before presiding judge Hon. Emily S. Mueller, Wisconsin ABOTA Chapter’s Trial Judge of the Year. Participating attorneys are ABOTA members, meaning they each have at least six years of experience as active trial lawyers and have each tried at least 25 jury trials over the course of their careers.
Be in the middle of the action as you observe:
Breaks throughout the trial give attorneys the chance to share the reasoning behind their strategies at every stage. In addition, watch and listen as jury members deliberate, and learn how and why they reached their decision.
Watch and learn from the best trial lawyers in the state by immersing yourself in this popular trial demonstration. Purchase now for the 28th Annual Institute of Trial Practice!
A young competitive bicyclist suffered serious, life-changing injuries when struck by an automobile while training. The defense will contend the accident was the fault of the bicyclist and the bicyclist’s father, who was overseeing the training. Significant issues surrounding the credibility of all parties will give the presenters the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in direct and cross-examination. The jury will be asked to assess both liability and damages.
