The Fifth Annual TIPS Section Conference was held in New York City on May 1–4. This year’s conference offered more than 25 credit hours of CLE! On the opening day, a group of 11 senior trial lawyers hosted a panel called “Trial Masters—Knowledge We Wish We Had Years Ago.” These seasoned trial lawyers shared their tips on the various aspects of preparing a case for trial and trying the case, including developing your theme, voir dire, opening statements, cross-examining an expert, using technology, and closing arguments. Not only were the speakers interesting and engaging, but the format of the CLE was unique in that each of these dynamic speakers had eight minutes to speak. The constant change kept your attention.
