New Mexico Regional Seminar 2019: Voir Dire
02/22/2019 - 02/24/2019
Santa Fe, New Mexico - The Lodge at Santa Fe
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.
With impeccable Southwestern accommodations with great amenities and friendly, professional service, The Lodge at Santa Fe offers the best value in Santa Fe. Perched on a hilltop overlooking downtown Santa Fe, with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Lodge at Santa Fe is a New Mexico hotel with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy convenient amenities, such as complimentary shuttle service to historic Santa Fe Plaza just five minutes away and a heated outdoor pool and hot tub.
Staff must arrive by 3 PM on Thursday, 2/21.
TLC Faculty Leader: John Sloan
Faculty Team: Jeff Hill, Michael O'Connell, Joy Bertrand, Michael Callahan, Emily Detoto, David Humphreys
