This CLE Webinar will provide an overview of how to successfully argue a case in court and will discuss best practices for effective oral arguments in U.S. courts, from preparation to presentation to perception.  The panelists will consider the roles of written submissions, such as briefs or motions, in determining how to frame an oral argument to a judge or panel of judges, the prudence of understanding your audience in advance, how to anticipate and account for “hot” and “cold” benches, and “do’s” and “don’ts” of making your case within a limited allotment of time, including how to argue your facts without merely reciting them.  This webinar will uniquely offer the perspectives of a former U.S. Magistrate Judge with 20+ years of experience hearing oral arguments, as well as a seasoned appellate litigator who has argued 15+ cases in various U.S. courts of appeals.
