Reception to Follow
The Francis Marion Hotel Charleston, S.C.
We have assembled the highest caliber lawyers from the ABA Criminal Justice Section and South Carolina to plan a spectacular set of demonstrations, analysis and commentary on direct and cross-examination. Few moments provide the kinds of opportunities for major impact on the outcome of the trial that direct and cross examination of witnesses give. Leading national and South Carolina prosecutors and defense attorneys will demonstrate how to use witnesses to lay the foundation for your case and how to dismantle the foundation attempted to be laid by opposing counsel. The Criminal Justice Section and the South Carolina Bar invite you to share this announcement with your colleagues and look forward to your attendance and participation. Join us for a day of programs and panel discussions presented by experts from South Carolina and across the country who will demonstrate stellar witness examination and discuss new developments in direct and cross examination.
