"A Conversation with the Legends: A Celebration of the American Jury Trial," MCLE

October 2014

A Conversation with the LEGENDS
A celebration of the American jury trial

In this one-of-a-kind seminar, Richard Zielinski, one of MCLE’s most expert speakers, engages in discussion with eight living legends of the trial bar. The experienced panelists give many practical tips on how to effectively try cases before juries and provide demonstrations of particularly dramatic moments from trials. They share war stories about great victories—and painful lessons learned in the courtroom. United States District Court Judge William G. Young, perhaps the
greatest living lecturer on trial practice, will also share his thoughts on the phenomenon of the vanishing jury trial and deliver his famous and ever-popular lecture on trial evidence.

Trial lawyers of all ages and experience levels will pick up invaluable tips and insights born of thousands of hours in the courtroom. There simply is no other way a trial lawyer coming up through the ranks can hope to replicate this experience today.
