About the Program
Identifying, proving, arguing, and ultimately keeping damages is the life-blood of any successful personal injury trial practice. Mastery of this element is crucial to your case analysis and strategy, and failure to properly prove and argue damages can literally mean the difference between success and failure for yourself and your firm, as well as your clients' interests and well-being.
This special seminar will explore key issues in the law of damages with an emphasis on recognizing, proving and arguing the kinds of damages available in a variety of personal injury actions. Our distinguished faculty, all of whom are talented and experienced trial attorneys or recognized authorities in their fields, are committed to in-depth analysis, as well as practical and interactive instruction.
