Renaissance Symposium XIV

HARVARD CLUB OF NEW YORK CITY
November 30, 2018
New York, New York

Renaissance Symposium XIV continues the LCA’s exclusive advanced trial series on November 30, 2018, at the Harvard Club of New York City, where you will have the opportunity of speaking before and learning from your elite peers in a small group setting. In addition to a unique learning experience, you will come away with an impressive credential for your bio, e.g., “Robert A. Jones, Cross-Examination of Experts, Litigation Counsel of America, Renaissance Symposium XIV, New York, NY, November 30, 2018.” There are only 16 speaker slots for this event, which is designed to allow for personal interaction and discussion on all of the presentations, and 10 additional slots for contributors. Contributors will participate in the discussions, but will not present a topic of their own.

The Renaissance concept is the brainchild of Ric Gass (2012 LCA President and Trial Law Institute Life Dean) of Gass Weber Mullins LLC, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who has tried almost 300 cases to verdict. The format is eight hours, sixteen speakers, thirty minutes each, speaking on any trial topic desired that will add to the superior trial strategies and tactics of Renaissance attendees. Best of all, you select your own topic with the only requirement being that it has to be something valuable you have divined about courtroom work that is so good you would pass it on to your most trusted friend in the legal community. The Renaissance series has been built around the idea of actual trial tactics and strategies, and less about pre-trial or preparation, so that everyone comes away with a variety of trial presentations, angles, tools and devices.

Renaissance Symposiums are not typical seminar programs where you can speak and leave. RS XIV is a full day of immersion in dialogue and discussion between 26 of your peers: trial lawyers with years of experience and verdicts. Fellows come to exchange trial tactics and techniques of the highest order. This type symposium only works if everyone is committed for the entire event. This is not a “drive through” or a “speak, greet and go” event. Those who speak early need to stay to the end out of respect for the process and for those who speak later. If your schedule does not allow you to be present the entire day, then perhaps it will for a future Renaissance Symposium.

 

There is a $695 registration fee to attend (covering breakfast, lunch, meeting space and AV for the speaking sessions). If you are interested in attending, please contact Julia Land at julia.land@litcounsel.org or 212.724.4128.

There are no written materials required and CLE credits will not be issued. We will, however, provide you with a Certificate of Attendance which you may submit to your state bar association(s) for possible approval.

The Litigation Counsel of America’s Annual New York Renaissance Dinner will be be held at Gallaghers Steakhouse on Thursday, November 29. Originally, a “speakeasy” launched by Ziegfeld girl Helen Gallagher in 1927, and according to legend, Broadway’s first steakhouse, Gallaghers promises a New York experience from start to finish. The restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of the Theater District on West 52nd Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue.

The evening will begin with cocktails in the Trophy Room at 7:30 PM, followed by dinner at 8:15 PM. The cost is $198.00 per person and includes a set three-course dinner, open bar and wine service, all taxes, fees and gratuities.

If you have any questions or are interested in attending, please contact Julia Land at julia.land@litcounsel.org or 212.724.4128.

Please RSVP at your earliest convenience as seating is limited.
