This program is a deep dive into the Land of Objections! Centered around the long-awaited trial, The People of Oz v. Dorothy Gale, learners will explore a variety of objections: definitions, use and purpose.
Dorothy has been charged with one count of murder, for killing the Wicked Witch of the East with her house. Elphaba - aka the Wicked Witch of the West - prosecutes the case, the Scarecrow serves as lead defense attorney, with the Wonderful Wizard of Oz presiding.
Counsel decide that objecting as often as possible will be their client's path to a favorable verdict. For each objection raised, participants will have the opportunity to make their own judgment on whether or not it should be sustained or overruled; Judge Oz explains the reasoning for his rulings. Will you agree with his rulings and with the final verdict? Ease on down the yellow brick road and find out...
THE COURSE IS PRESENTED IN SIX MAIN SECTIONS:
- Part I: Undue Prejudice
- Part II: Improper Character Evidence
- Part III: Leading Questions & Competency
- Part IV: Personal Knowledge
- Part V: Hearsay!
- Part VI: The Verdict
Sections contain video presentations, a script from the original presentation, supporting resources and short quizzes or assignments.
Once you have gone through all the sections, you'll complete an evaluation and then a certificate can be issued for attorneys wishing to self-report for CLE credit (this program should be valid for 1.5 general CLE credits in most jurisdictions).
Thanks to the Earl Warren American Inn of Court in Oakland, CA for their content idea and presentation! Remember, they are lawyers not actors, Hollywood camera operators or audio technicians...
