Advocacy Tips for Motions Pre-trials & Trials

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

In this Middlesex Law Association (MLA) program, Justice Duncan Grace, Justice Alissa Mitchell, and Bill Woodward share advocacy tips for motions, pre-trials, and trials, and also discuss the impact of innovations like SharePoint and CaseLines on the judicial system. 

The panelists cover various aspects of effective advocacy, such as organizing files and providing relevant materials to judges, including hyperlinks. These improvements provide judges with early access to case files, leading to better preparedness, faster proceedings, and helping to deal with the backlog caused by the pandemic. Justice Duncan Grace, Justice Alissa Mitchell, and Bill Woodward emphasize avoiding unfocused submissions and addressing persuasive arguments from the opposing side. They also discuss the qualities of an excellent trial lawyer, cross-examination techniques, and resources for trial lawyers to improve their advocacy skills in the courtroom.
