Every experienced trial lawyer tries a case with a trial notebook. The essence of a good trial notebook is putting together everything you need to try your case in one place. This program will tell you how to do this: how to prepare and use a trial notebook, both hard copy and electronic, including what goes into each and what doesn’t. You will learn how to prepare a trial notebook that will take you from pre-trial to judgment, starting with pre-trial orders and filings and proceeding through jury voir dire, opening statement, direct and cross-examination, expert testimony, exhibits, closing argument, and jury instructions and verdict form.
This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

- Preparing your voir dire examinations
- Organizing direct examination
- Setting up effective cross-examination
- Organizing and getting exhibits into evidence
