Effective Advocacy: Writing & Trial Techniques @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center
Feb 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

What makes legal writing and oral advocacy effective? Most experts posit that the best legal writing and oral advocacy has a decidedly “non-legal” tone. Our panel of judges will explore essentials of legal writing and oral advocacy in various contexts, with an emphasis on how telling a good story is imperative to constructing compelling arguments. Blue booking will most emphatically not be addressed!

Panelists:

  • Hon. Scott Crabtree
  • Hon. Andy McCallin

Citizen Lawyers @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center Room 2B
Mar 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

At the time of the American Founding, Thomas Jefferson, among others, viewed lawyers as the class of citizens most suited to lead the American institutions of government, as well as preserve and protect them. Jefferson valued the ideal of the “Citizen Lawyer” who would have a broad liberal education, experiential learning, and be capable of using knowledge of the law to promote the public good.

Today, our nation is once again in need of strong lawyers who can work for the public good, to protect our system of government, preserve the rule of law, and promote the positive reformation of law when needed. Join our panel of “Citizen Lawyers” to learn how lawyers can leverage their roles in public service to positively influence issues of public policy, legislation, and lawmaking.

The Road to Rainmaking: Real Tips From Law Firm Leaders @ LawBank Colorado
Apr 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

It is no longer sufficient to simply be a smart attorney. You must be as comfortable marketing and selling as you are practicing law. Develop your practice by choice, not chance. If your goal is to be a rainmaker and grow a profitable practice, it is time to develop your plan. Contrary to popular belief, there is no personality type or gender that makes a good rainmaker. There is also no single approach or method that makes rainmaking easier. The road to rainmaking is paved by the bold, the driven, the decisive, the committed, and the consistent. Join our panel of experts to learn the keys to building your own rainmaking pathways.

  • Kathryn Reilly

The Legal Revolution: Disrupting & Improving the Practice of Law @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center
Jul 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

The law is changing. It always has changed. Slowly, to be sure, and incrementally, but steadily. A slow-motion revolution. Simplistically, the theory of disruption says that newcomers to an industry may find ways to profitably serve the needs of people who are not customers of incumbent businesses because they are not profitable to serve under the incumbent companies’ business models. Join our panel of experts to learn how technology, alternative business structures, and access to justice are leaving a lasting (and bettering) impression on the practice of law.

Understanding Secondary Trauma: A Guide for Lawyers @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center Room 1C
Sep 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Secondary traumatic stress, also known as vicarious trauma or compassion fatigue, is a condition that mimics post-traumatic stress disorder. It is caused by being indirectly exposed to someone else’s trauma. Many lawyers and judges are unaware that secondary trauma might be affecting them or their colleagues. You do not have to work directly with a traumatized client to develop secondary traumatic stress: anyone who works in a courtroom and listens to testimony about traumatic events can be at risk. This program will help you understand and recognize trauma, secondary trauma, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, and the tools you can use to prevent burnout. You’ll gain strategies to improve client relationships, to better serve your clients and care for yourself.

  • Amy Kingery of COLAP

Taking the High Road: Dealing Ethically & Professionally with Bullies @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center
Oct 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

Unfortunately, too many attorneys mistakenly believe that they have to take zealous advocacy to the extreme by engaging in bullying, hostile, abusive and unprofessional conduct. This conduct often is directed against junior attorneys, women and minorities and may include comments that are sexist, racist or otherwise offensive. Having a good understanding of the ethical prohibitions against bullying in the practice of law and the proper and permissible ways to respond to this misconduct, can make a difference is how effectively you represent your client and protect yourself. Celebrate Legal Professionalism Month by joining our panel of experts discuss effective strategies for dealing with bullying adversaries who don’t play by the rules.

  • Alexis Reller
  • Jon White

Shifting Into Neutral: Dispute Resolution For Beginners @ Ralph Carr Judicial Center
Nov 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

Legal and other disputes are increasingly resolved by dispute resolution processes other than litigation. Given this trend, it is important for new lawyers to be familiar with these alternative processes, such as arbitration and mediation, and the benefits and risks they present. At the same time, these alternative processes require creative and interdisciplinary problem-solving perspectives and skills. Join our panel of experts to explore negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and court-connected dispute resolution procedures. Gain a conceptual and legal framework of basic dispute resolution processes and skills. We’ll also cover ADR career pathways and how to thrive as an ADR practitioner.

Panelists:

  • Marianne Lizza-Irwin
  • Joan McWilliams
