Opening statement is not merely a case introduction for the jury. The right kind of opening is also your best possible mediation tool, and it provides the ultimate planning tool and guide for crafting your entire case together for trial and keeping you on track from voir dire through closing.
You will learn how to do all this at this year’s Trial Advocacy College: Damages with David Ball, Ph.D. under the guidance of a faculty of carefully chosen experts and consultants. And you will get invaluable hands-on guided experience in trying it out with small groups of your colleagues.
Perhaps most importantly, you will learn how to incorporate today’s three all-important trial techniques into a single powerful opening: 1) “Rules of the Road” (based on the Pat Malone and Rick Friedman book, Rules of the Road); 2) Reptilian advocacy as taught by one of its founders, and 3) the David Ball on Damages techniques based on the brand-new David Ball on Damages 3. You will also learn–and practice–the ultimate method of doing away with jury biases.
This is the “bringing it all together” college. Whether you are a newcomer to “Rules”/”Reptile”/ “David Ball on Damages” or an old hand at it all, this college is the first program that will put it all together for you and take you to your next mastery level.
Special feature #1: One-on-one case-guidance session with David Ball, Ph.D.
Special feature #2: Bring a case of your own to work on during the interactive, recorded workshops.
