You’ve selected your jury and presented your case; now it’s time to secure the verdict. Are you ready for your closing statement? Studies show that a clear, compelling closing argument can be the difference between a big verdict—or a vexing loss.
Trial Guides invites you to learn how to build a winning closing argument with John G. Simon, a seasoned trial attorney and member of the Inner Circle of Advocates. John will examine the main objectives of a compelling closing argument: arming your jury, using the law to strengthen your case, and enlisting the jurors as part of your winning team.
You’ll get practical examples for motivating your jury and keeping their attention—all while avoiding pitfalls like repetition or overconfidence. John will demonstrate how to use jury instructions to structure your argument, as well as how to combat those specious, nonlegal defenses. Finally, he will provide several real-life examples of how these methods have been used to build a winning closing argument.
This comprehensive webinar will also cover:
A strong closing argument does more than just restate the facts; it distills your case, simplifies your side, and energizes your jury to render justice for your client.
