John E. Tull III will serve on the faculty of the International Association of Defense Counsel’s 47th Annual Trial Academy being held July 27-August 2, 2019, at Stanford Law School. The IADC Trial Academy is one of the oldest and most respected programs for developing defense trial advocacy skills. The seven-day intensive program blends faculty instruction and demonstration with individual student participation. The faculty consists of leading defense trial lawyers selected on a national basis from different regions of the country. Each faculty member is assigned to a group of five to seven students which allows for individualized attention and instruction. The faculty utilizes proven methods of instruction for a full learning experience and exposes participants to different approaches and ideas in solving common trial problems. Each student conducts opening statements, direct and cross examination of lay witnesses, direct and cross examination of medical doctors and economists, and closing statements. These exercises are videotaped and the faculty member critiques them with the student. Christoph Keller will be participating as a student for this session.
The IADC Trial Academy was initiated by the International Association of Defense Counsel in 1973 at the University of Colorado and moved to the prestigious Stanford Law School in 2004. The purpose of this continuing legal education program is to enhance advocacy trial skills of less experienced lawyers. More than 4,000 students have attended the Trial Academy since 1973.
Mr. Tull is a Managing Member of the law firm and concentrates his practice on complex commercial litigation, products liability litigation, and media law.
