100 Questions about a Will Challenge

Speakers: Clare Burns

Some suggest that Johnny Cochran’s closing comment to the jury “If the gloves don’t fit, you must acquit” distracted the jury from the strong evidence and resulted in O.J. Simpson’s acquittal. Closings can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing a case.

In part, the upcoming seminar will use the moot court to educate attendees on questions relating to the closing argument in the context of a Will Challenge. By hearing their closing arguments, attendees will learn how skillful trial lawyers artfully present their closing arguments by telling their respective clients’ narrative together with an analysis of the law.

WeirFoulds partner Clare Burns will participate in the moot court.

Lawyers and/or accountants interested in attending may contact Elyse Gruenspan at B’nai Brith Canada at 416.633.6224 or email at egruenspan@bnaibrith.ca.
