May 15-18, 2007
Tulane Law School in New Orleans

The 6th Annual American Bankruptcy Institute/Tulane University Law School Litigation Skills Symposium will be held at the Tulane Law School in New Orleans, May 15-18, 2007.

The four-day Symposium offers insolvency practitioners a rare opportunity to gain critical skills in a unique learn-by-doing environment. The Symposium combines quality instruction with individualized critique. The expert faculty demonstrates the specific advocacy skills necessary to be an effective practitioner. Participants work in small groups; their performances are videotaped and evaluated by the faculty who provide invaluable feedback on technique, style and strategy. The workshops include live performances by lay and expert witnesses. The final-day mock trials will be held at the Hale Boggs Federal Courthouse. The entire program is extremely work-intensive and interactive for both the attendees and faculty. Enrollment is limited to the first 24 registered practitioners to maximize the learning experience. Approximately 18.25 hours of CLE/CPE credit are available.

Lecture and demonstration topics will include:

  • Introduction to Bankruptcy Litigation and Trial Preparation
  • Direct Examination and Introducing Evidence
  • Cross Examination of Expert and Lay Witnesses
  • Art of Persuasion/Trial Techniques to Win Your Case
  • Tactics and Strategies
  • Litigation Ethics and Professional Responsibility
