June 21, 2018 to June 24, 2018 | Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE | Houston, TX

Focus groups are invaluable tools for finding the key issues and weaknesses in your case before taking it into the courtroom – but they can be time-consuming and expensive to run. AAJ Education’s Case Plus: Focus Groups for Plaintiff Cases takes the guesswork out of conducting your own focus groups. At Case Plus, you’ll not only participate in three focus groups, screened and recruited by AAJ staff specifically for your case, you’ll work with an experienced faculty member who will guide you in preparing for your focus groups, asking the right questions, and analyzing the results. And, you’ll get individual instruction in shaping your case presentation using your groups’ feedback. Plus, you can bring an additional member of your trial team at no cost!

Registration Fees: AAJ Members: $6,995

Case Plus is currently full and operating on a waitlist. To add your name to the waitlist, please email education@justice.org or call AAJ Education at 800-622-1791.

Advanced 30(b)(6) Seminar

November 7, 2018 to November 8, 2018 | AAJ Headquarters | Washington, DC

People often think Rule 30(b)(6) regarding depositions is only relevant in large federal cases, major corporate litigation, or mass tort cases. That’s a big mistake. A 30(b)(6) deposition is a tool that can enable you to efficiently gather information about a corporation’s systems, policies, or practices. On November 7-8, 2018, AAJ Education is delving deep into the rule at the Advanced 30(b)(6) Seminar. Our faculty will go beyond the basics of the 30(b)(6) deposition and will break down this rule to elucidate and apply its components to real-world case examples.

Registration Fees:
$895 for AAJ Members on or before July 13, 2018
$995 for AAJ Members after July 13th, 2018
