Oral Advocacy Boot Camp (YLD)
Sole, Small Firm and General Practice; Young Lawyers Division | 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Become an outstanding oralist and a more effective legal advocate

Take advantage of this valuable opportunity to get “on your feet” with practical oral advocacy experience before members of the Judiciary and Bar. Your session will be videotaped so you can more thoroughly understand your public speaking performance and can gain a better appreciation for the indispensable feedback that instructors provide you.

You will walk away from this session with:

  • The ability to articulate your ideas aloud, confidently and clearly
  • Practical guidelines on oral advocacy, including body language and voice control
  • Hands-on oral advocacy experience
  • Essential advice from experienced litigators
  • Videotaped presentations for self-viewing and critique

Choose your learning format:

Option 1: There are a limited number of slots available for those who want to be videotaped and receive direct feedback so register now to secure your spot! For those who register for Option 1, a fact scenario will be provided in advance of the CLE to allow time to prepare your brief five minute oral submissions.  NEW this year! Choose a general litigation, criminal law litigation, or family law litigation fact scenario, and be critiqued by judges and practitioners who are experts in the field.

Option 2: You may also choose to attend the instructional portion and observe the workshop.

Register now to build the practical skills you need to succeed in the courtroom!
