Many new trial lawyers share an unfortunate dilemma: how to build and develop trial practice skills and experience when so few cases make it to the courtroom. While seasoned trial lawyers often pride themselves on the number of trials they had in their early years, those new to the practice often struggle to find similar opportunities as fewer and fewer cases make it to trial. You will hear from a veteran trial lawyer, a San Francisco Superior Court Judge, and a 2010 graduate whose managed to gain significant trial experience about 1) how to get a case to trial; 2) the value of gaining early trial experience; and 3) how to succeed when you get there.

• Using pro bono opportunities
• Expedited trial options
• The importance of client relationships
• Gaining support from your firm
• Performing effectively in the courtroom
