Keys to an Effective Federal Civil Practice

Hear straight from the bench on two topics near and dear to every litigator: advocacy to the court and settlement strategy.  Two panels of current and former federal judges will share their insights.  The first panel will focus on ways to become more persuasive (and perhaps less annoying) in your written and oral advocacy.  The second panel will focus on improving the effectiveness of settlement conferences.

Topics and Speakers:

Effective Oral and Written Advocacy
Honorable Matthew F. Kennelly, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois
Honorable Thomas M. Durkin, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois
Honorable Sheila Finnegan, Magistrate Judge, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois
