There can be no better education—and entertainment—than to be seated in the front row as some of the greatest trial attorneys of the past century rise to cross-examine a witness or deliver their closing argument from some of history’s top courtroom performances. Trials of the Century is likely the preeminent CLE in America. It gives step-by-step instructions and uses world-class illustrations to both educate and entertain. Watch actual trial footage and listen to verbatim recreations from transcripts. This seminar allows you to emulate some of the greatest techniques ever developed, and avoid some of the greatest mistakes ever made. Listen, learn, and enjoy!
