Evidence for Trial Lawyers:

An Update of Irving Younger’s Classic Presentation

6 CLE - Tuesday, November 14; 9:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M.

LIVE IN-PERSON SEMINAR – ICLEF Conference Facility, Indianapolis

LIVE WEBCAST – From your home or office


PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:

• Learn classic and contemporary approaches

• Reconcile the rules of evidence law with the modern considerations of the craft of advocacy.

• Be entertained and discover valuable, practical tips that will benefit your courtroom skills.


OVERVIEW:

Evidence for Trial Lawyers spans the chasm between theoretical possibility and everyday reality. It emphasizes the rules that actually affect real trial lawyers in real jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, proceedings before administrative law judges, and other hearings.


Steve Easton’s practice-based advice is built around Younger’s original presentation — still the gold standard for evidence training — but it goes beyond the original with impactful advice on recent developments. Younger and Easton both offer knowledge gained through substantial trial experience in a wide variety of cases.


This program focuses on fundamental concepts that you face in every trial. It also shines a light into some overlooked nooks and crannies that can help you introduce the proof you need and shield your client from improper material your opponent will try to admit. After this program, you will enter your next trial or hearing with the confidence that you are armed with a solid working knowledge of the one area of the law that each trial attorney needs to master—evidence.


If you remember Younger fondly and want to relive the magic he created, you must come. If you’ve never experienced Younger’s remarkable presence, you must come. And, if you know a young lawyer who does not remember and has no knowledge of Irving Younger, you must come and bring that young lawyer with you!
