This program will showcase methods of creating compelling opening and closing statements and direct and cross-examinations of witnesses through a re-enactment of an actual civil trial. There will also be an Hon. Shira Shindlin awards ceremony. The program is followed by a reception.

Please note that while this program is currently scheduled to be in person, if any guidelines due to COVID-19 change, we will need to move the program to a virtual format.
