Magna’s back with live, IN-PERSON, edutainment! Please join us at our upcoming CLE event “Battle of the Experts” on October 6th and 7th at The W South Beach in Miami, FL. The two-day CLE program will feature interactive micro-panel exercises involving teams of outside counsel, in-house counsel, claims executives and audience members working together alongside real life experts. Micro panels will work on preparing their moderators and experts for direct examination role plays, and outside counsel moderators and experts will then go head to head in a “Battle of the Experts” in front of a judge and jury! As always, Magna will provide the facts of a case using audiovisuals and special effects as well as sessions to provide techniques and best practices for successful expert witness prep.
