In the past, the advice given to young, ambitious trial lawyers was always – if you want to learn how to try cases, go to the courthouse and watch trial lawyers in trial. Well, Courtroom View Network (www.CVN.com
) has gone around the country video-taping the greatest trial lawyers in the country in some of their biggest trials. CVN’s trial library is one of the greatest, most powerful educational tools for trial lawyers that has ever existed. Not only does CVN videotape the trial, but they also capture the exhibits being displayed to the jury, and you can take screenshots of those slides. This is an amazing tool that we all should take advantage of.
Bootcamp attendees will be given free access to the CVN trial library for 2 weeks in advance of the Bootcamp and will be “required” to watch selected videos of great trial lawyers in trial (e.g., Mark Lanier’s opening/closing/cross exams in the recent Talc trial; Karen Koehler’s opening in the Duck Boat case; Nick Rowley and Courtney Rowley doing a voir dire; John Romano’s cross examination of an expert in a TBI case; Keith Mitnik, etc.).
