The mission of the Sorrell Trope Trial Institute Program is to make attorneys more comfortable and effective in a trial environment. This year’s program will focus on organizing and presenting the client’s case through carefully crafted party and expert witness testimony and the use of exhibits and demonstrative evidence. Learn how to use the rules of evidence to keep out harmful testimony or to provide the court with helpful evidence. The program will feature a mix of lecture, panel discussions and mock trial demonstrations showing how to effectively frame questions,"package" testimony for better effect, use and properly introduce exhibits at trial, and the use and abuse of objections. The program will conclude with a panel discussing the Court’s perspective of, and how to do, effective courtroom advocacy.
