Young lawyers, summer associates, interns and law students are invited to an award-winning free CLE program in the Ceremonial Courtroom on July 18th. This is a “not to miss” program for any younger lawyer who practices in federal court or would like to develop skills in written and oral advocacy.

First, Judge Matthew Kennelly will hear oral argument in two pending cases from 3:30 pm until 4:30 pm. After the oral arguments, Judge Kennelly will lead a panel discussion from 4:30 pm until 5:30 pm among U.S. District Judges Sharon Johnson Coleman and Manish Shah and U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cummings. The Judges will discuss best practices in written and oral advocacy, and offer their advice to the younger lawyers and law students. Immediately following the program, there will be a reception in the 25th floor elevator lobby. 2 free hours of CLE will be given.
