Rules & Case Selection is the sole entrance to the Keenan Trial Institute.  Completing Rules give students the right to attend other KTI courses.  Imagine leaving the Rules course with the introduction to an opening statement focused on winning your case in the first four and a half minutes.

Trial Lawyers first learn the dirt simple truth that case selection criteria are the most important focus of their case.  Students work in small groups to develop Rules for their own case.  Instructors introduce Don Keenan’s 7 Rules for Writing Safety Rules.   The KTI’s system for improving trial lawyer’s skill forces students to get on their feet and present their Rules to their classmates.  Using the “trifecta” tool, students and instructors collaborate to develop and refine their Rules.  Armed with safety rules, students give the introduction of the opening to the class.  Investing your time to critique fellow students makes you uber efficient in the right way and wrong way to develop safety rules.

The simple truth is the Rules College is the important foundation to the system trial lawyers deserve to win and protect their community’s safety by holding wrongdoers accountable.
