Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a family financial trial from start to finish! Join us in Grafton on October 8-9, 2015 as judges, experts, and experienced practitioners come together for this two-day nonstop action mock financial trial regarding maintenance, child support, college support, and asset division. An entire formal trial is conducted, including opening statements, witness examinations, and closing arguments. The witnesses include a business valuation expert and vocational expert whose complete reports are included in the materials. Each witness examination is followed by an interactive discussion in which the Assistant Judges review and comment on the rulings and testimony, along with audience discussion of the witness’s impact and case theory. Breaks and lunches will be set and witness testimony will be held over until court reconvenes as in an actual trial. The Court will rule at the close of the case. Family law attorneys with all levels of practice experience will benefit from the breadth and scope of the lessons demonstrated through this mock trial, including how to analyze trial strategy and the effectiveness of witness testimony.
The program is presented by the ISBA Family Law Section and qualifies for 15.0 hours MCLE credit, including 15.0 hours Professional Responsibility MCLE credit (subject to approval).
