Join nationally recognized memory-training consultant Paul Mellor for a session that will improve the way your mind retains facts. Learn techniques to improve your memory and apply that to your everyday practice. Mellor’s objective is to show you how a trained memory can increase your efficiency and productivity in all aspects of law. He will shred the myth that memory cannot be enhanced and help you lay a foundation for total recall. Invest in a better memory.
You have invested years in becoming an attorney and you invest months preparing a case. Invest one day to strengthen your mind and achieve these goals: 

•  Think quickly and clearly without fumbling for notes 
•  Remember important information about a jury and use it to win cases 
•  Effectively recall facts and figures from research and interview to argue cases in court

A finalist in the UsA Memory Championship in New York City, Paul Mellor remembered the names of over 90 people 
in less than 15 minutes, recalled in correct order over 100 single digit numbers after a five-minute study and recalled 
the exact order of a shuffled deck of playing cards after less than a three-and-a-half minute review.
He is the author of three books; MEMORY! How to Remember Anything, Stop Studying So Much—helping students achieve better grades with half the study time and You’re Almost There about his completion as having run a marathon in all 50 states. He resides in Richmond, Virginia.
