Spring Symposium Module 2: The Skilled Advocate

Being a skilled advocate requires many ingredients - knowledge of the law, mastery of court procedure, and proficiency in different types of advocacy.

At this micro-symposium, you’ll hear the varied perspectives of the bench, the public sector, and the private bar on public law issues.  You’ll hone your skills on using demonstrative evidence effectively in court.  And you’ll hear perspectives on civility in the legal profession from retired Justice Eleanore Cronk.
