2021 Bar Convention Trial & Appellate Advocacy Section Out of Stock
Thank you to our South Carolina Bar Convention sponsor!
About the Seminar
The Trial and Appellate Advocacy Section is continuing to focus on developing courtroom advocacy skills, including knowledge of key issues for practicing in trial and appellate courts and the ways to improve presentations to judges and juries. Justice Few will provide a view of key evidentiary issues and how those issues are viewed from the bench. Angela Dooley and Mary Beth Pfister from the National Advocacy Center, who train US Attorneys for the DOJ, will teach us how to make more impactful and persuasive presentations to juries and judges. This powerful presentation will address traditional on-your-feet advocacy as well as new realities of presenting virtually. We will end with a presentation from Professor Colin Miller. He will break down empirical data and court decisions on no-knock warrants to determine whether they are still defensible in the 2020s.
