GRADUATE: Direct Exam (VIRTUAL)
August 24, 2022 - August 26, 2022
Direct Exam students will quickly remember what we all know to be true but oftentimes overlook: The lawyer must get out of the way and allow the client to tell their story. When we get out of the way, let our clients do the storytelling, our client becomes the most powerful witness at trial.
During the three-day Direct Exam College students will get to see and experience the transformation of their direct exam skills. Students will first learn the tools of direct exam including creation of both the Client Profile and Direct Exam Checklist.
Role playing exercises are woven throughout the college and will include the building of a direct exam through the Client Profile and the right way / wrong way to do a direct exam.
Finally, students will have the opportunity to build and perfect the direct exam for their own cases and role play the direct exam of their client the right way.
