Please join us on Saturday, March 25, 2017, for AABANY’s annual Trial Advocacy Program, hosted by the Litigation Committee, sponsored by Morrison & Foerster and Veritext, and featuring keynote speaker the Honorable Kiyo A. Matsumoto from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Started in 2012, AABANY TAP provides participants with the chance to conduct their own opening statements and direct and cross-examinations, all while receiving valuable feedback from our experienced faculty members.  Participants are assigned a partner and receive the course materials in advance of the program.  Participants must thoroughly review the course materials and prepare for TAP on their own and with their partners prior to the day of the program. TAP also includes morning and afternoon panels on effective trial advocacy featuring distinguished and experienced litigators.  This year, we are thrilled and honored to welcome back Judge Matsumoto as our keynote speaker.

AABANY is certified by the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board as an Accredited CLE Provider.  This program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the CLE Board for a maximum of 6 credit hours towards the Skills requirement. This program is suitable for both transitional and non-transitional New York attorneys.
