The seminar will feature two traditional panel discussions. Audience participation is strongly encouraged. Topics include:

Damages Anchoring: This CLE presentation discusses the proliferation of nuclear verdicts around the country, some of the psychological reasons behind such verdicts, and provides practical advice for defendants as to how to avoid being on the receiving end of a nuclear verdict. Traditional versus new and recommended defense approaches to damages will be discussed – specifically, the concept of low anchoring – supported by academic research as well as jury research case studies.

Expert Nightmares: Has a bad expert witness ever damaged your case? Share a war story or experience where your case suffered because of a less than stellar expert witness. What went wrong and why? Discuss some strategies to weed out bad experts!

A networking reception will follow immediately after the session at the hotel property. The registration fee is $195.00. We are expecting two CLE/CE credits.
