About

The Trial Lawyers College Voir Dire Seminar introduces you to a method of jury selection in which you will learn how to identify the danger points in your cases, to reframe them into points of power, and how to approach potential jurors as an inclusive, rather than exclusive, process. You will divide into small groups to work on your own cases where you will learn by doing, not by struggling through endless lectures. Join TLC’s faculty team of trial lawyers, behavioral and communication experts to learn how to become the leader of your tribe -- one composed of you and your jurors -- who together will win justice for your client.

Location The hotel is located within walking distance of the Plaza in Downtown Santa Fe and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and is a short drive to Meow Wolf.

Conveniently located in the heart of historic downtown Santa Fe, the Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe features 20,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space, both inside and out. After your meetings, unwind in our modern, spacious rooms with endless views of the Santa Fe skies.

Faculty

All Trial Lawyers College courses are taught by graduates of the College, who volunteer their time, talents and resources to provide high-quality training not offered in any other CLE program. Because our faculty are volunteers, and are actively practicing in their respective firms, our faculty list is subject to change.
