Testing 123…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 by experienced and less experienced commercial litigators, critiqued by prominent members of the judiciary. There will also be a ceremony for the presentation of the Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin Award for Excellence in the Courtroom. The program is followed by a reception.
