Trial Preparation – 90 days before Trial (WEBINAR)



The last 90 days before the trial are the most important. Getting ready for your trial must start early. There is much to do before you show up for trial. Hopefully, you have completed written discovery and conducted essential depositions.

In this online MCLE webinar Thomas D. Nielsen, Senior Counsel at Jacobsen and McElroy, PC will help you become a puzzle solver by putting together all the elements necessary to provide a clear outline of subjects and considerations you will need to institute as your trial date looms closer.

Topics include:

– Develop investigative procedures.

– Create a trial notebook to keep everything in order and easily accessible.

– Gather evidence including depositions.

– Request and organize all documents pertaining to your case.

– Prepare exhibits for use at trial.

– Draft outlines of direct testimony and cross-examination questions.

– Craft opening remarks and closing arguments.

– Cultivate jury selection objectives.

– Generate effective jury instructions.

Now is the time to focus on putting together all the pieces of the puzzle to get you to win your case!
