2021 Maricopa County Bar Association Bench Bar Conference

This program will give litigators (and future litigators) of all levels of experience a chance to hone their courtroom
advocacy skills. Experienced lawyers will offer tips on effective opening statements, witness examination, and closing
arguments. After each presentation, participants may volunteer to present an opening, closing or examination of a witness
on a hypothetical case and receive feedback from a Superior Court judicial panel. No advance preparation is
necessary as participants will be provided with a fact pattern of a hypothetical case at the beginning of the program. GT shareholder Nicole Goodwin (PHX) will be a presenter for the Courtroom Advocacy Program.
