THE TRIAL ADVOCACY SEMINAR HAS LIMITED REMAINING AVAILABILITY. IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE COMMUNICATE VIA EMAIL TO THE SECTION ADMINISTRATOR, WILLIE MAE SHEPHERD, AT WShepherd@floridabar.org. IF THERE IS ANY AVAILABILITY, YOU WILL BE CONTACTED IN THE ORDER THAT YOUR EMAIL WAS RECEIVED.
Make plans now to attend the 2019 Trial Advocacy Workshop. Hone your trial skills as you prepare and present a family law case from beginning to end. Choose between a “Children’s Issues” track or a “Financial Issues” track (preferences will be considered but are not guaranteed). You will be paired with an opposing counsel and will be part of a small group where you will receive individualized attention and critique from your workshop leaders, all of whom are either Board-Certified Marital and Family Law attorneys, judges or general magistrates. You will meet with mental health experts (“Children’s Issues” track) or financial experts (“Financial Issues” track) and will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage in open discussions. The Trial Advocacy Workshop always sells out, so take this opportunity to change the way you approach a contested family law proceeding and sharpen your trial tools. And for those hoping to become Board Certified or re-Certified in Marital and Family Law, remember that completion of the Trial Advocacy Workshop counts toward your trial requirement.
