In this educational experience, you will hear from some of the greatest advocates across the USA. These pioneers, mentors, trainers and teachers will take you on an extraordinary journey covering everything you need to know about strategies, tactics, philosophical concepts and the do’s and don’ts as it relates to voir dire and personal injury and wrongful death cases. This is not a course dealing with gimmicks or tricks or shortcuts, but rather a hardcore training session taking you mentally and emotionally to a different place in terms of your trial preparation and jury selection methodology.
