CLE

Straight Talk with a Judge

Written and oral advocacy are the most powerful tools in the practice of law. An attorney’s job is to persuade. To be persuasive, your advocacy must be understood. Communication that is dense, impenetrable, lacking cohesion, or poorly structured will not get your message across. And you may lose your limited opportunity to make your case.  

Join District Judges Juan Villaseñor and Laurie Dean to discuss what they wish practitioners knew about presenting evidence at trial and providing effective written and oral advocacy in motions.
