Top Trial Lawyers Share Their Winning Strategies

At Weekend with the Stars you will network and gain unparalleled insight from the experience and expertise of the nation’s preeminent trial lawyers. Top trial lawyers will share their winning strategies and case-tested techniques that attendees can then apply in their own cases.

This year's Weekend with the Stars Seminar will consist of three half-day sessions, giving you more time to enjoy New York City during the most wonderful time of the year. After the education sessions, you can explore Herald Square, take in a Broadway show, ice skate in Bryant Park, or visit Macy’s flagship store, located right next door. The program is ideal for both new and seasoned attorneys.
