The Courtroom Boot Camp for attorneys is an intensive three-day program for attorneys who present and cross-examine expert witnesses. Attendees will be guided and critiqued by our experienced faculty of attorneys and experts.

The Boot Camp will be culminated with live mock trial segments during which each attorney will have the opportunity to present and cross-examine experienced experts, and be critiqued by our seasoned faculty members.
Business Damages for Attorneys
Attorneys who practice in the areas of business litigation, family law, employment law, intellectual property law, and other areas involving financial issues typically retain CPA’s, valuation experts, and economists to present expert testimony relating to the financial issues. Attorneys who have an understanding of the expert’s work are much better positioned to use the expert’s analysis most effectively throughout the proceeding, craft direct examination that will present the expert to be most credible and persuasive, and to be prepared to strategically cross-examine the opposing expert.
