Zen Lawyer & Advocacy Continuing Legal Education Workshop

Zen Lawyer & Advocacy Continuing Legal Education Workshop

Trial Guides is pleased to announce a Zen Lawyer & Advocacy CLE Workshop. In this event, Michael Leizerman, Jay Rinsen Weik, and Joshua Karton.  

The three will teach concepts from Leizerman and Weik's book Zen Lawyer: Winning with Mindfulness.  The three will then work with attendees to put the concepts into practice.  

Leizerman, one of the nation's leading trucking lawyers, uses Zen practices in his legal practice. In this workshop he will discuss how lawyers can improve their quality of life and success in legal practice using these methods.  He studies with Jay Rinsen Weik, a Zen Buddhist abbot, priest, and teacher.  He is also a Professor of mindfulness and creativity.

Joshua Karton will also help attendees with persuasion methods discussed in his Trial Guides book Theater for Trial.   Karton is well loved within the legal community as a legal consultant in both national and international criminal defense and civil litigation matters.  He is an expert in storytelling and witness preparation and a long time instructor at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College.

Attendance at this workshop will be limited to allow the three teachers to maximize the practical use of the methods taught.  

This event will be August 23-26, 2018 in Toledo Ohio.
