Liu, M.D., J.D. will participate in a six-credit CLE, "Trial of a Medical Malpractice Case" on December 9, 2009. Participants will learn valuable trial tips and techniques from Shepherd and Liu along with other Philadelphia attorneys while experiencing a mock trial and being a part of the deliberation process. The course will be held at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) Conference Center, on 10th Floor of the Wanamaker Building, Suite 1010, in Philadelphia from 9am - 4:45pm.
According to PBI, "This program received rave reviews in all past presentations and the accolades came from trial lawyers in all areas of law." They said, "Whether you are a medical malpractice attorney, or whether you try other types of civil cases, criminal cases, employment cases, or handle commercial litigation, this course will give you a chance to sit through an actual trial, complete with a judge and jury, and learn from the best. You'll pick up some great tips and have a chance to observe the styles of very successful attorneys who all have their own approach to examining witnesses, addressing juries and managing a trial."
Attendees will have the opportunity to watch the jury deliberate and have a chance to question the jurors after they reach their verdict. Watching the jury process unfold provides trial attorneys with a unique look into something that normally takes place behind closed doors. The demonstrations will include: direct and cross examination of the plaintiff, opening statements, examination of plaintiff and defense expert witnesses, examination of the defendant doctor, closing arguments and jury deliberations.
