Hour 1 – The Upsides of Using A.I.  Guy D’Andrea, a nationally regarded litigator and adjunct at Drexel U. Kline School of Law, is an expert on the use of A.I. in litigation practice and will explain and demonstrate some of the mechanics of this.

Hour 2, Part 1 -Beyond the Basics: Teaching Modern Advocacy through the Dynamic Lens of Rhetorical Evolution Dominique Hinson, Director of Appellate Advocacy at South Texas College of Law will talk about rhetoric and how it can be taught to improve advocacy skills of the current generation of students.

Hour 2, Part 2 – Preserving the Right to Jury.  Dean Charles H. Rose  III will look at the legal, moral and philosophical underpinnings of the right by trial to jury – what it defends, and how each of us might go about making certain it remains a key feature in the 21st century legal landscape of America – a subject all too often omitted from the advocacy curriculum.
