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 a slice of history in the heart of New Orleans' Arts District

Set across two towers - one a historic warehouse, the other a modern build - the newly renovated Hampton Inn & Suites New Orleans Convention Center hotel offers unique accommodations in the heart of New Orleans. Located in the Arts & Warehouse District originally developed in the 18th century, the neighborhood is home to many businesses, shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and the Riverwalk Outlet Mall.
