The Bay Area Bankruptcy Forum
In Cooperation with the California Bankruptcy Forum
Presents the following Distance Learning Program
Oral Advocacy-Then and Now:
Has Covid-19 changed how you argue your case?
Honorable Beth L. Freeman, United States District Judge, Northern District of California
Honorable M. Elaine Hammond, United States Bankruptcy Judge,
Northern District of California
Dennis D. Miller, Partner at Lubin Olson & Niewiadomski LLP
Program to include:
Do you ever wonder why you don’t have success at oral argument? Is it really beneficial to debate points with the Judge? What are the most important issues during oral argument from the Judge’s perspective? Are you prepared to argue virtually? Does appearance matter in the virtual world of oral argument?
Find out what Judges think of these points and what to do (and not to do) in presenting your oral argument. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from two distinguished experienced judges from the United States District Court and the Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District who listen and judge good and bad arguments every day.
