30th Annual Institute of Trial Practice
 

​What is ABOTA

The Wisconsin ABOTA Chapter is sanctioned by the American Board of Trial Advocates, and is committed to improving the quality of legal representation, promoting the art of advocacy, and efficiently administrating justice. To qualify as a member, attorneys must be nominated by another member, achieve at least six years of active experience as a trial lawyer, and have tried at least 25 jury trials to conclusion over the course of their careers. To learn more, contact Wisconsin Chapter President Claude J. Covelli. 

Volunteer members of the Wisconsin ABOTA Chapter present this seminar. Their commitment of time, talent, and energy in service to the Bar is deeply appreciated.
