Come to San Francisco
November 10-13
The Second Annual Meeting of the Section of Litigation
will be held in San Francisco, California, on November
10th to 13th, 1977. The Hyatt Embarcadero Regency
Hotel, located on the San Francisco waterfront, will
serve as the headquarters for the meeting with the
educational program being held at the University of
California, Hastings College of Law, located near the
San Francisco Civic Center. The heart of the meeting
will be two days of trial skills development patterned on
the widely acclaimed clinical teaching techniques of the
National Institute of Trial Advocacy. The program is
based on the belief that the lawyer develops trial skills in
large part by participating and by observing others par-
ticipating in real or simulated trial court situations.
You on Video
Registrants will be assigned to small groups where
simulated trial problems will be handled by each
registrant. All participants will be given the opportunity
to have their performance videotaped for later viewing
and critique. Team leaders for each group will consist of
experienced trial lawyers, many of whom have been in-
volved in the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. In
addition, each registrant will have the opportunity to
observe acknowledged leaders of the trial bar
demonstrating their varied approaches to different trial
problems. Within each group there will be an inter-
change of views between participants concerning the
strategies and tactics of handling specific trial problems.
Good Times
An exciting social program is planned utilizing the uni-
que setting of the San Francisco Bay Area. Thursday
night, November 10, there will be a reception for
registrants and guests at the Embarcadero Regency. Fri-
.day evening there will be a cocktail cruise on San Fran-
cisco Bay, ending with dinner across the Bay in
Tiburon. Saturday night will be the Section Annual
Dinner-Dance. On Sunday the meeting will conclude
with a tour of the Napa Valley wine country, including
the opportunity to test the wares of some of California's
most famous wineries.
