“Opening Statement – How to Teach Medicine to Juries in a Medical Malpractice Case”

  • In advance, each participant must prepare a 5-10 minute opening statement focused solely on teaching the key medicine in their case. 
  • Participants will present their openings at the workshop and receive immediate feedback on presentation effectiveness, ways to simplify the medicine, use of analogies and metaphors, and translating “complicated medical principles” for regular people.
  •  Participants will also practice the “physical opening” – use of the body, reenactment, and effective use of physical space to persuade in Opening.


*Applicants must submit their case descriptions to Bell@BellLawFirm.com no later than September 24th.*
