Champions of Trial Boot Camp

Hosted by Rich Newsome, Mike Kelly and Troy Rafferty

Trial School and Mass Torts Connect are pleased to announce the Champions of Trial Boot Camp, an incredible twelve part program on trial advocacy featuring live stream lessons taught by today’s best trial lawyers from across America. Champions of Trial will feature 12 weekly lessons, with each two hour lesson focusing on a different phase of the trial from Voir Dire to Closing Arguments and everything in between. Each lesson will feature three or four faculty members who will present different methods and approaches to each piece of the trial followed by a short summary of how the different approaches can be combined into a Mixed Method Advocacy or “MMA” approach. Participants will also be given a short memo of the black letter law for each class and an MMA outline for each topic.

The Champions of Trial Boot Camp is open to all lawyers and law students and is completely free. If you are a trial lawyer looking to up your game, or a law student who wants to learn today’s top trial advocacy methods from attorneys with record breaking verdicts who are at the top of the profession – this Class is for you!
