2017 Al J. Cone Trial Advocacy Institute



What to expect 

This seminar offers three full days of engaging presentations and interactive workshops designed to advance your trial skills.

Attendees go through the entire trial process from the defense and plaintiff perspective using a case fact pattern.

Throughout the three days, attorneys learn alongside their peers and receive mentorship and feedback from Florida's most successful trial lawyers.

This seminar is worth 26 Hours of General CLE Credit and anyone who participates in the Al J. Cone Trial Advocacy Institute may have their attendance reviewed by the Civil Trial Certification Committee for one Jury Trial substitute.

Each year, participants rave about the impact this seminar has had on their professional confidence and trial skills. Attendees will develop valuable relationships with other personal injury attorneys new to the practice as well as those with decades of experience.

There is simply no better way for a new personal injury attorney to get this intensive level of trial preparation.
