    About Marjorie Russell

    Marjorie Russell is one of the founders of the CDAM Trial College, retired law professor, and criminal defense lawyer. She is now a case development, jury and trial consultant for plaintiffs in civil claims of all kinds, as well as for the accused in multi-defendant federal prosecutions, including death penalty, murder and white collar crimes; and in state court capital and life felonies, and claims of sexual assault and abuse. Whether in active cases or in continuing education seminars, Marjorie’s perspective on case and trial preparation employs a blend of action methods, storytelling techniques, brain science, and a good dose of humanity. She is a specialist at finding the story, values and connections that move jurors to action. Once discovered, Marjorie can guide the lawyer and witnesses in presenting their story in a compelling and memorable form. She has been active on the staff of the Trial Lawyers College founded by Gerry Spence and others, since 1996. Many of her techniques have been honed in the amazing laboratory of the TLC, for which she is grateful.

     Some county/court funding units will pay for part, or all, of the cost of your registration. In some instances, hotel per diem and mileage are also covered. It is up to you to contact your local funding unit to determine if this is applicable to you and what payment or reimbursement method you will need to use. If you do not know the contact information for your court’s local funding unit, contact Deborah Mitchell at the MIDC at 517-657-3066 or dmitchell@michiganidc.gov. If you email, use the subject line “CDAM.” 

    If your funding unit is not listed on the attachment, CDAM is not your provider for MIDC CLE. However, you are welcome to attend, and credit hours accrued meet MIDC standards and can be applied toward minimum standards.

    NOTE: Before you begin to register under the Assigned Counsel or Public Defender category, you must get the name of your court’s funding unit who authorized your registration.
