About “Give me an effective voir dire and opening statement, and as long as the trial lawyer maintains his or her credibility, the case is won.” -Gerry Spence

The Trial Lawyer’s 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 Like No Place On Earth

Kauai is Hawaii's fourth largest island and is sometimes called the "Garden Island," which is an entirely accurate description. The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls! Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination. More than just dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. You can kayak the WAILUA RIVER, snorkel on POIPU BEACH, hike the trails of KOKEE STATE PARK, or go ziplining above Kauai's lush valleys. But, it is the island's laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns that make it truly timeless. Make your escape to Kauai and discover the undeniable allure of the island.

Course Materials & Prerequisites

Several articles are required reading as a part of your course but you are not required to read them prior to the course. Printed copies will not be provided to you, but may be downloaded at any time from the TLC website (https://www.triallawyerscollege.org/register-for-a-course/course-materials/).

Applicant must be a member of their State Bar in good standing. Must also be a plaintiff's lawyer, public defender, or a criminal defense lawyer. TLC does not offer training to attorneys who are an employee of a corporation, insurance firm or of the federal government (exception for public defenders).


Food, Lodging & Roommates

The Regional Constellation Seminar fee does not include sleeping room charges or airport shuttle. The student is responsible for making their own sleeping room and transportation arrangements for this seminar.

In addition, because of the many and varied available choices for accommodations on Kauai, students are able to choose the property that best fits their style and budget. The course will be held in the Princeville area, so you will want to choose lodging near the North Shore for convenience. The Kauai visitor’s bureau website lists many properties that may fit your needs: https://www.gohawaii.com/islands/kauai

Course registration deadline is the Monday prior to the course start date unless the course is sold out prior to that date. Because this constellation is limited to 20 students, we anticipate this course will sell out early.


Travel Information
