ROSELAND, N.J./February 4, 2010 -- Connell Foley partner Brian G. Steller has formalized an inaugural five-day trial college on the campus of Princeton University from June 6 through June 10, 2010. With just a few coveted spots remaining, 35 students with three or four years of trial experience from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania firms will meet with 20 accomplished faculty attorneys from across the United States.
Approved by the local chapter of ABOTA and the Executive Committee of the National Board of Directors, on the agenda are advanced techniques in trial preparation and trial practice. Participating faculty from as far as Washington, Texas, California, and Arkansas will select a group of students at the end of instruction to demonstrate strengthened skills during a mock trial, with former Chief of the Federal District Court for the District of New Jersey and Princeton alumnus John Bissell presiding.
"The trial college is in line with ABOTA's mission to promote professionalism and civility, and formal presentations will reinforce these standards for those involved in heavy trial practice," stated Steller.
