Upcoming Events 

    • 01 Nov 2017
    • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    • Charles Evans Whittaker Courthouse, 409 9th ST, Kansas City MO 64106


    The American Board of Trial Advocates, KCMBA's Trial Academy, KCMBA's Federal Court Advocate Section, MODL, WDMO/DKAN Federal Bar Association, LAKC, and the Civil Jury Project are sponsoring the first Kansas City Jury Improvement Lunch on Wednesday, November 1 at noon at the Charles Evans Whittaker Courthouse, 400 9th Street, Kansas City, MO 64106.  This lunch will be hosted by the following law firms: Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice, Bartimus Frickleton Robertson, Berkowitz Oliver, German May, Gorny Law Firm, Littler Mendelson, Shaffer Lombardo Shurin, and White Graham Buckley & Carr.  Others may join as sponsors or hosts.  The purpose of the lunch is to honor the jurors and to learn from them about what can be done to improve civil trials. 

    We are asking practicing lawyers to pay $19 for their own lunches.   The cost of the lunches for the judges and jurors will be shared by the host law firms.   We are in the process of arranging for the lawyers who attend to receive credit for their continuing legal education requirements.  Anyone interested in improving their trial skills will not want to miss this lunch.  It was the overwhelming consensus of those lawyers and judges who attended our previous lunch that it was informative and should be repeated at regular intervals.      Because we assign tables (to make sure the lawyers from the same firms, the judges and the jurors are divided) and have limited space, we ask that you make a reservation in advance if you want to attend. You can do so by using this link: http://civiljuryproject.law.nyu.edu/jury-improvement-lunch-registration/.
