The Atlanta Lawyer June/July 2017 - Page 34

SECTION UPDATE LITIGATION Litigation Section Super Pass™ Means Super Value! A Litigation Section membership has always provided great value. Almost one-third of Atlanta Bar Association members choose to belong to our Section. This year the value will be greater than ever! For younger lawyers and litigators who see the courtroom less than they would like, our entire 2017-2018 program year—all nine breakfast meetings and our Spring CLE program—will focus on a single theme, the “Life of a Trial”: 9/8/2017 Planning for Trial (and Discovery) 10/13/2017 Jury Selection 11/10/2017 Opening Statement 12/8/2017 Witnesses (Lay & Expert) 1/12/2018 Evidence (Real & Demonstrative) 2/9/2018 Damages 3/9/2018 Closing Argument 4/13/2018 Objections and Appeal 5/11/2018 Trial Ethics and Professionalism February CLE Program: ADR (including Trying your Case in Mediation) If you would like to participate in a program or have sugges- tions regarding topics or format, please contact me directly at litigationsection@atlantabar.org or ed@koniecznylaw.com. Our programming and marquee events this year also will be more affordable. For the first time ever, we are offering a Section “Super Pass™,” which provides admission to all nine breakfast meetings, the Meet the Judges Luncheon, the Bench & Bar Reception, and all Section socials (last year there were four). That’s a $300+ value for a single low price of $175 for regular members and only $90 for lawyers practicing fewer than five years (plus CLE fees). The Super Pass™ is cheap and easy to obtain, saving you the hassle of registering for single events and guarantying admission to events that sell out. Do you have associates? Consider giving them a Super Pass™ and “urging” them to get involved. They can learn about trial practice, earn CLE, network, mingle with judges, and meet new friends. This promises to be an exciting year. Your Section officers and Board members invite you to take advantage of all we have to offer. Ed Konieczny Edward C.
