Immersive, three day workshop where attorneys take authenticity and truth into the courtroom to give their clients a winning edge.

About this event

Discover the dynamic mix of theater skills, martial arts, and mindfulness training that allows lawyers to connect authentically with jurors and win cases.

Presented by trial lawyer Michael Leizerman, trial communications consultant Joshua Karton, and Zen Abbott Jay Rinsen Weik, the Core Method Workshop puts into practice techniques Michael has used to obtain record-breaking settlements and verdicts across the United States. This course offers a unique synthesis of law practice, meditation, empathic communication, martial arts, logical reasoning and emotional connection, working to unify life inside and outside the courtroom toward a common goal: fully living life to reduce suffering in the world.

Michael, Joshua, and Rinsen have offered this unique weekend workshop annually since 2016, returning this year after a break in 2020. The workshop includes seminars from the hosts, break-out discussions digging into participants' law practice as case studies, and integrating the embodied movements of aikido and qigong.

First-time participants and returning attendees welcome. This workshop is open to plaintiff's and criminal defense lawyers only—people representing people.

Workshop Highlights:

•Mindfulness and Practicing Law: Listen to your client, your opponent, your judge, your jury, yourself and others.

•The Trial Warrior: Learn aikido and Japanese swordsmanship principles as they apply to jury selection, cross-examination and other parts of trial.

• From Presentation into Persuasion: Transforming stage fright into stage presence. Creating the jury’s collective "NOW."

• The Motivational Core in Discovery, Mediation, and Trial: Using specific trial examples, simplify a case around a Core Truth in opening, direct & cross, using defense depositions to prove your case.
