From File to Trial: 8 Keys to Success in Court and Beyond featuring Mark Drummond
For years the South
Carolina Bar has invited internationally acclaimed trial advocacy instructor,
Mark Drummond, to present From File to Trial: 8 Keys to Success in Court and
Beyond. Within weeks after the pandemic
shut down most court systems, Judge Drummond designed a course on remote
advocacy for which he received the first ever National Institute for Trial
Advocacy (NITA) Leadership Service Award for the “Creation and Launch of Remote
Advocacy Courses.” As the Executive
Director of the Civil Jury Project at NYU School of Law he launched one of the
first model remote jury trials. During the pandemic he presented webinars to thousands of attorneys and provided one-on-one coaching to hundreds of attorneys on remote advocacy techniques for trials, motions and depositions.
This program incorporates
the lessons of the 8 Keys into all aspects of litigation including tips and
techniques that apply to motions, discovery, depositions and appeals, in
addition to trial. You will learn tips and techniques for remote advocacy as well as in-person advocacy and the e advantages and disadvantages of each.
We’ll conclude the day with an hour of legal ethics, discussing The Key to the art of persuasion whether in the courtroom or over a remote platform.
This is going to be one program you do not want to miss!
