Every caring lawyer involved in litigation has experienced the stress (trauma?) of wondering and worrying about witness testimony. Powerful Witness Preparation provides a modern prescription for persuasive verbal and non-verbal witness communications that will benefit every lawyer - regardless of experience (or inexperience).

Dan Small, a highly-respected, experienced litigator - and witness expert - walks you through the methods, procedure and rules that will make your witness a powerful, compelling communicator.

Small has worked in large and small firms, as general counsel of a healthcare management firm, and as a prosecutor for the U.S. Justice Department. He is a respected author on this subject - Preparing Witnesses: A Practical Guide for Lawyers and Their Clients, (3rd Edition, American Bar Association).

Dan represents witnesses, plaintiffs and defendants in wide-ranging investigations and proceedings and in both civil and criminal litigation; that incredible breadth of experience is reflected in the bottom-line practical counsel he offers in this highly-acclaimed seminar.

Developing expertise, or even modest success, in witness preparation takes years, trials and, for most lawyers, many errors. Small's objective is to rapidly increase the learning curve while minimizing the pain inherent in inadequate or improper witness preparation.

Invest one precious day to discover new tips, tactics and techniques that will make you a more effective advocate. Period.

The Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865, and is a defining moment in our nation's existence. The United States post-war was a much different nation than it was when Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office as President on March 4, 1861. Indeed, the Civil War has often been referred to as the Second American Revolution, as significant changes politically, militarily, and socially came together to forge a new America. At the heart of that revolution was the watershed transformation driven by a myriad of legal issues. Legal Lessons of the Civil War is an exciting new seminar designed to explore those important legal problems as well as their solutions.

As an attendee, you'll learn how some of those legal issues have relevance in today's modern world. Cases such as ex parte Merryman (dealing with the important writ of habeas corpus) and ex parte Milligan (providing a framework for trial by military commissions) continue to have ramifications. Similarly, the promulgation of the first "Laws of War" and General Thomas Ewing's General Order #11, which called for forced evacuations of citizens in western Missouri, have had a lasting impact on our country's jurisprudence. Equally as important is the Dred Scott case, and how that set in motion the ultimate firing on Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861.

The seminar will also provide an analysis of the war's battles and leaders, as there are many parallels between the battle field and the court room. Finally, the Civil War ushered in three amendments to our Constitution, and they truly transformed the nation. Attendees will hear about the 13th Amendment (abolishing slavery), the 14th Amendment (equal protection of the laws), and 15th Amendment (right to vote) from a Constitutional scholar, and learn of the lasting impact those amendments have made in American society.

This entertaining and valuable journey will take you inside the human body through videos, illustrations and animations as you learn the parts of the body that are most susceptible to injury and those that are not.

Word classes designed for the general public just don't address the issues legal professionals face when drafting legal instruments. By contrast, this class is designed by lawyers, for lawyers. In this seminar, you'll learn the right way to set up complex legal documents and how to avoid the formatting problems and delays you’re probably used to encountering. Barron will answer any attendee questions for an entire week after the seminar, and he encourages you to let him help you (it's free)!

Attendees will also receive 5 sample templates that can be downloaded as complex formatting examples (joint venture agreement, lease agreement, pleading, trust agreement & appellate brief).

HOW you say "No" to your client, partner, boss, or business colleague can make or break your career. Yet most instinctively or intuitively just blurt out a "no" or take just a few minutes to consider it before jumping headfirst into what could be a make or break moment for you. This can be devastating. In this program led by negotiation expert and author Martin Latz, participants will shift their mindsets and behavior from instinctive to strategic based on the experts' proven research. Next time they face this situation, they will systematically think about which strategies to use and have a strategic framework within which to approach it. How they say "no" will then be based not only on their own experiences, but on the collective experiences of the best negotiators in the world and on the most up-to-date research.
