Motions can be stressful and making submissions remotely adds a level of complexity. Are you ready for your next (or first) remote motion? Join us and get candid advice from experienced counsel and members of the bench on both oral and written submissions. From the strategy stage to the appearance itself, this program provides support and guidance for practitioners at every level. For those virtual appearances, you will get tips and tricks for preparation, troubleshooting, and delivery. Don't just survive – thrive!
Participants of the Motions Advocacy plenary session are also eligible to join us for our hands-on skills workshop on March 9th.
This remote workshop will get you on your (virtual) feet to make or respond to submissions in a mock motion. You will get practical feedback from our trained instructors and learn from your peers, while working in a comfortable, small group setting.
The plenary program will be held on March 4th and the learning-by-doing skills workshop will be held on March 9th. There are two registration options: (1) plenary + workshop or (2) plenary only (see below for more information).
- Strategy and motions: what you should consider before bringing or responding to a motion
- Navigating evidentiary issues
- The do's and don'ts of written advocacy
- Tips and tricks for successful advocacy in the virtual courtroom
In addition to hearing from members of the bench on what they find most effective.
