Refocus is the continuing evolution of Rodney Jew's critical thinking approach to litigation. You will learn how to apply Rodney's critical thinking approach to case selection, which will have an instant positive effect on your bottom line. Rodney will show you how to develop bold time- and cost-saving strategies for discovery before discovery even starts.

You will also learn how to go beyond using disconnected demonstrative exhibits and instead create an interrelated, interdependent visual strategy for your entire case. The faculty will drill down deeply on proven techniques to help you rethink how you present your case to juries.
