Hosted by the NYSBA Commercial and Federal Litigation Section
This program will showcase methods of creating compelling opening and closing statements and direct and cross-examinations of witnesses through a re-enactment of an actual commercial trial.
The re-enactment will feature experienced women trial lawyers, including former Commercial and Federal Litigation Section Chairs presided over by a former federal judge. The trial will be followed by a panel discussion and critique by sitting justices who will share their observations, advice, and insights.
Morrison & Foerster’s Carrie H. Cohen and Amanda L. Gayer served as program faculty.
