This training, which will take place in Salem Wednesday November 16-Friday November 18, will be provided free of charge to registrants, including travel, per diem, and lodging.  Attendees must attend the entire training in order to receive CLE credit and to receive reimbursement.

This 2.5 day training covers topics including:

*       Cross Examination
*       Working with Experts
*       Closing
*       Plea Negotiations and Sentencing
