Chicago attorney Bob Kreisman attended the American Association of Justice (AAJ) annual meeting in San Francisco, July 25 through July 29, 2009. The meetings presented a variety of educational forums including those concentrating on medical negligence, birth trauma litigation, product defects and trial practice. The subset of the educational programs was nursing home litigation, truck and auto/vehicle collisions, and other areas of trial practice including pharmaceutical defect litigation.
In addition, the meetings included seminars on trial practice. One of the most popular is called the Advocacy Track which had speakers from morning until well into the late afternoon of each conference day. Most valuable is the time spent with other lawyers from around the country sharing their different experiences in jury trial techniques. The meetings represent a kind of re-charging that allows lawyers, judges and paralegals to apply new ideas to our cases.
Justia.com CEO Tim Stanley and staff were exhibiting at the convention center. The event, as always, was very well attended.
