Additional Event Information

ATTENTION ATTENTION! CALLING ALL UP-AND-COMING PROSECUTORS! Welcome to the track we are calling Back to Basics! Just as the title suggests... we will spend this week delving into the essential skills of courtroom proceedings. To ensure you have a strong case you need to ensure you have a firm foundation of basic principles in the courtroom. Join us this week as we cover Opening Statements, Direct Examination, Cross Examination, and Closing Arguments. The following sessions are geared towards prosecutors just starting their careers in the field, but we also encourage experienced prosecutors to attend as well. Refreshers are always good to have!

We are thrilled to have Jesse Evans, Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney with Cobb Judicial Circuit speaking to us about Opening Statements.

Here is a brief description of his training:
Opening Statements are perhaps one of the most important parts of a criminal jury trial. Studies show that most jurors make up their minds about their verdict by the end of opening statements and never change their decision. Yet, many attorneys fail to give opening statements their needed attention. In this webinar, prosecutors can learn tips on "capitalizing on opening" opportunities in their cases thereby creating momentum for victory.
