Trial Evidence: Artistry & Advocacy in the Courtroom – Dec. 19

Program Description:
Examine evidence from the most important point of view -the judge’s – and upgrade your working knowledge and understanding of evidence with the most popular and published expert in this fast-changing field.

In this dynamic, practice-based program, Tom Mauet uses his vast experiences as a trial lawyer, law professor and judge to help you organize evidence in the way it should be – from the judge’s perspective.

Mauet frames his presentation by using the three Rs:
Is it relevant?
Is it reliable?
Is it right?

He focuses on potential problem areas – raising and making persuasive objections – and highlights his points with memorable flow charts and examples.

This highly-acclaimed, comprehensive, entertaining program is enhanced by a continuous visual presentation and a detailed evidence manual. You will find useful checklists for immediate implementation into your practice.
• Master the seven methods of impeachment;
• Define the original documents rule and utilize character traits to your benefit; and
• Revisit the law of evidence in a way that will help you win the evidentiary wars before, during and after trial.

The program includes an analysis of FRE 502 and its impact on:
• subject matter waiver
• inadvertent waivers made during the discovery process, and
• the effect of federal court orders on other federal and state court proceedings.

Program Highlights
• First steps – what to do as soon as an evidence problem arises.
• The three Rs approach to evidence.
• Making objections that persuade the judge.
• Establishing proper foundations for witnesses and exhibits.
• Nine steps of expert testimony admissibility.
• Understanding the hearsay / non-hearsay dichotomy.
• Seven impeachment methods and rehabilitation.

Topics:
Is it Relevant?

• Policy exclusions
• Privileges exclusions

Is it Reliable?
