Programs Included in this Bundle
  1. Eliminating Implicit Bias In Jury Selection, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution specifically provides that an accused is entitled to trial by an "impartial" jury. The right also exists in civil trials. Based on over 25 years of experience as a trial judge, Judge McCalla will explore the cases interpreting this constitutional mandate and jury selection techniques which have been proven to eliminate juror bias and predisposition. A practical exercise will demonstrate how you can achieve that result and ensure a fair trial for your client.

  2. Outside-The-Box Discovery Tools: Getting Creative With Discovery In The Era Of Proportionality, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    Practitioners may fall into habits and routines and, in doing so, lose sight of creative ways to use discovery advantageously. This panel is designed to change those habits and provide refreshing insights into old tools as well as new techniques like fighting “proportionality” and using it to plaintiffs’ advantage. Our approach will be pragmatic, covering several discovery tools in sufficient depth to give practitioners real-world strategies they can immediately put to use. For instance, we will propose new ideas for using Rule 30(b)(6) depositions, requests for admission, Rule 34 requests for entry on land, and share drafts of effective interrogatories instead of the usual canned requests. We will also focus on both offensive and defensive discovery techniques in light of the December 2015 amendments to Rule 26 to include proportionality as a component of the scope of discovery.

  3. Witness Interviewing, Examination & Lie Spotting, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    Philip Mullenix, an attorney and frequent consultant to law enforcement, will share his strategies on witness interviewing, examination, and lie spotting. Since 1976, Mr. Mullenix has provided instruction to hundreds of attorneys, military, intelligence, law enforcement, and security personnel in the detection of deception, interviewing, and interrogation. Mr. Levin-Epstein is a NELA member and a seasoned trial lawyer with over 40 years of experience in criminal law. His criminal law practice has enhanced his ability to represent individuals effectively in their employment-related matters as there is significant overlap between the two fields and where clients face situations which have implications from both an employment and criminal perspective. This presentation will include many valuable tips and techniques for taking depositions and conducting direct and cross-examination at trial.

  4. Putting A Dagger In The Heart Of Summary Judgment, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    It is almost 20 years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s ground-breaking decision in Reeves v. Sanderson Plumbing. Properly read and applied, Reeves should have led to a marked reduction in the number of summary judgment motions filed, and the number granted. Yet we see summary judgment motions in almost all of our cases. We cannot blame that solely on recalcitrant judges. Our panelists will take an interdisciplinary approach to discussing ways in which we can convince courts actually to apply Reeves and similar cases properly and as they were intended, as well as other ideas for convincing courts to deny dispositive motions.

  6. Winning Your Case With Technology, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
    No matter where you look, technology is all around us. Every day, we come across new ways to make tasks easier, faster, and cheaper. Lawyers who try cases in the 21st century must be familiar with modern methods of trying cases or they will be left behind. But where do you begin? What equipment and software do you need? Should you do it yourself or hire an outside consultant? Our panel of expert practitioners will help answer these questions by discussing various presentation strategies and types of technologies that can be used in the courtroom, including TrialPad, TrialDirector, PowerPoint, Prezi, and more. They will also provide practical advice on how to get started, how to save money, and what to do to get ready for trial.
