CPCS has approved 1.0 CLE credit hours for YAD, Mental Health, CAFL, Post-Conviction and the Adult Criminal Panels.

Come join a panel of expert practitioners and a distinguished Superior Court judge to hear their insights into what works, and what doesn’t, at trial.

The Honorable Douglas H. Wilkins will provide commentary on his view from the bench;
A. Bernard Guekguezian, Adler Cohen Harvey Wakeman Guekguezian, on persuasive Opening Statements & Closing Arguments;
Christopher A. Kenney, Kenney & Sams, P.C., about the importance of Direct Examination of both lay and expert witnesses. Attorney Kenney is the author of the Massachusetts Civil Trial Practice chapter on closing arguments;
