ABOUT

Trial Lawyers College is excited to present its Voir Dire Seminar in partnership with the Thomas Kline School of Law at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on February 18-20, 2022. TLC is the trailblazer of this 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, guided by TLC-trained psychodramatists [at least a 6:1 student-faculty ratio], 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

Once the historic Stephen Girard Building, our 19th-century hotel sits in Philadelphia's Midtown Village neighborhood. We're circled by dining, two blocks from Reading Terminal Market, and a half-mile from Independence Hall.

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.
Course will be led by John Sloan

Course will begin at 8:00am on opening day and end by Noon on closing day. More details will be sent to registered students as the course nears.
