Course dates (time is noon to 1 p.m. each day):

April 4
: Courtroom Technology. The first session will focus on how to use the technology in the courtroom. See it from the jury box and practice with it from the witness stand. Here is your chance to – without a judge or a jury waiting – test out, learn about, and use the things in the courtroom. Please bring with you something you would like to use, practice with, or test out! CLE Credits: 1 General, 1 Technology

April 11: Witnesses. The second session will involve directing and cross-examining witnesses. Sit in the witness box, listen from the jury box, and discuss practical issues related to witness management. Please bring with you something you would like to try or do with a witness. CLE Credits: 1 General, 1 Criminal Appellate, 1 Criminal Trial, 1 Juvenile Law

April 25: Evidence and Objections. The third session will address proffering, using, and making objections to evidence. Bring your rules of evidence and something you would like to discuss admitting, using, or fighting! CLE Credits: 1 General, 1 Criminal Appellate, 1 Criminal Trial, 1 Juvenile Law

May 2: Opening Statements and Closing Arguments. Don’t just practice in the mirror; try it out in a real courtroom with all the bells and whistles. This is your chance to test it, try it, or discuss it without a judge or jury in the room…but in one of the very rooms where it needs to happen! CLE Credits: 1 General, 1 Criminal Appellate, 1 Criminal Trial, 1 Juvenile Law
