HOW THIS PROGRAM CAN HELP YOU!

To be a successful litigator, in either a civil or a criminal trial, you have to master the art of the objection. This seminar will load your advocacy toolkit with numerous valuable tools that will help you understand, make, and refute objections.

Whether you are making or defending against objections, our speakers will offer battletested tips and strategies to be used for interrogatories, depositions, and trial or hearing.

BONUS! You will receive the electronic version of the upcoming 2022-2023 edition of Objections: Interrogatories, Depositions, and Trial—a $90 value.
