You’re arguing a motion and, while your adversary is responding, you suddenly think of one more point that will help you win your argument. You wait for him or her to finish, open your mouth to speak and …. it’s gone. So aggravating! So embarrassing!

We have all had times that something slips away whether information about a witness, a particular clause for a contract or the name of a colleague. We resign ourselves to expect that we won’t be able to remember everything that we should or would like. But what if we could recall facts, testimony and ideas when we need them the most? We would be better prepared, more confident and may even win more cases.

Enter Matthew Goerke, one of America’s leading experts in the field of memory development. In Matthew’s interactive 3-hour workshop, you will learn how to organize your mind, sharpen your memory and add another weapon to your legal arsenal.

John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and
the American Dialogue

Presented in cooperation with the New Jersey State Bar Foundation

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, our second and third presidents, signers of the Declaration of Independence, diplomats and statesmen, friends and rivals, and founding fathers, died on the same day, July 4, 1826, on the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

Time and history brought together Adams, the New Englander, federalist and advocate, and Jefferson, the Virginian, classic Republican and writer, help create some the fundamental liberties we enjoy today. Both were lawyers, both were political. They each had strong opinions and they often disagreed with one another, yet they differed as rational friends. They were not perfect men, but their legal and political legacies live on every day in courtrooms and legislatures all across the country.

Their timeless words echo through the generations, and as a nation we continue to try to live up to the ideals they espoused. Historian Joseph Ellis wrote that they “came to embody the American dialogue.” That dialogue about what freedom means and what role government should or shouldn’t play in the lives of its citizens continues unto this day and is the main pillar of our legal system. It also defines who we are as nation. We live in their vision and continually seek to understand it - both for ourselves and for those who will come after us.
