Winning at Trial Out of Stock


Co-sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers – Colorado Chapter




Once a year, the Colorado Chapter of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) gathers some of Colorado's finest to share their expertise with you, the trial lawyer - regardless of your experience level. Pick up strategies, practical solutions and tips, techniques and skills at this premier trial skills and advocacy program.
CBA-CLE will email webinar access information to registrants 24-48 hours before the program.
Home studies will be available approximately 2-3 weeks following the live program.
If disability accommodations or special assistance are needed, please contact us at [email protected]. Requests must be made at least two weeks prior to the scheduled program.
The program will be submitted for CLE accreditation in Colorado. If you need to seek accreditation in another state, please review the process and requirements for that individual state. CBA-CLE staff can provide a Uniform Certificate of Attendance, and it is the attendee's responsibility to complete the accreditation outside of Colorado.
