Louisiana Regional Seminar 2019: Voir Dire
02/22/2019 - 02/24/2019
New Orleans, Louisiana - Hampton Inn Convention Center
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.
The vibrant French Quarter in New Orleans is a destination everyone should experience in their lifetime, and now is the time! February is the best time to learn the deep history of our South away from the large crowds that visit in March and April. The Hampton Inn & Suites Convention Center, New Orleans sits on the banks of the Mississippi and a short 20-minute walk from the French Quarter. Share this experience and destination with other TLC alumni and colleagues as you learn to build a tribe with your jury, to learn to ‘show yours first’, and to connect with your jury in a way you have never been able to before with methods of the TLC Voir Dire.
Staff must arrive by 5 PM on Thursday, 2/21
