More than 80 attorneys and students attended a two-day course over the first weekend of December to learn more about jury persuasion, trial work, electronic discovery and products liability issues.
Speakers included Charleston School of Law President Ed Bell; Atlanta, Ga. attorney Don C. Keenan; S.C. Court of Appeals Judge Aphrodite Konduras; Colorado attorney James L. Gilbert; and Charleston School of Law Professor Allyson Haynes Stuart.
“Our packed Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar featured legal stars who stimulated the dozens of attorneys and students who attended,” said Bell. “Our goal was to provide a very practical seminar for participants – and we exceeded beyond my expectations.”

A newly-licensed attorney found the discussions just as stimulating: “After attending this seminar, I feel much better prepared for the practice of law.”
