What does it actually mean to “make an appearance in court”?

It once meant people gathered in person, face-to-face, oaths taken to tell the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth. It now can also mean pixels, faces and voices on computer screens, as well as too often the assumption that Justice is not merely blind, but bought and rigged.  That to serve on a jury is not one of the great, sacred American institutions, but something one couldn’t get out of.

For our clients, and for our country, what do we do?

CDAM’s Trial College is an intensive, five day deep-dive into the mechanics of persuasion and credibility. “Courtroom Communication” must move people to take action on behalf of your client, whether live or remote; so, it is interactive, not achieved through sitting, taking notes on lectures or Power Point presentations. In-session participation will run from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM to provide attendees the full benefit of on-your-feet training with a faculty including Michigan’s best and most experienced criminal defense attorneys, and internationally recognized trial consultant and CLE trainer, Joshua Karton.
