Two QG&T Attorneys Attend 2018 ABOTA Trial College

Lindsey C. Pesek and Philip A. Elmore attended the 2018 American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) National Trial College held June 10-15, 2018, on the campus of Yale Law School.  Designed for second-year through sixth-year trial attorneys from both sides of the bar, the program consists of five days of intensive instruction, student exercises, and critiques culminating in three simultaneous mock jury trials on the final day with each student having significant participation.  Faculty demonstrations and student exercises encompass all aspects of civil jury trials from effective voir dire to persuasive opening statements and closing arguments.  The classes are taught by highly experienced trial lawyers from all parts of the country who share their techniques of trial preparation and the art of effective advocacy.  QG&T Managing Member Steven W. Quattlebaum served as a faculty mentor for the Trial College and is also a national officer of ABOTA.  The American Board of Trial Advocates is a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
