Gus Brown Teaches Litigation Skills
Augustus F. Brown recently (January 2012) was a featured professor in a combined University of Maryland Carey School of Law / University of Baltimore School of Law third-year law student Litigation Skills Program.
This program, a combined full-semester course coordinated by the American College of Trial Lawyers, invites experienced practitioners to address the law students, all under the supervision of faculty advisors Judge J. Frederick Motz of the US District Court for Maryland and Professor Jerome Deise of the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.
With Gus were Kathleen Meredith and Paul Mark Sandler, both well-known Baltimore area litigation experts, and the sessions were moderated by James R. Chason of the American College of Trial Lawyers, who complimented Gus by saying this his presentations "really got the program off to a great start!"
"I presented on 'Structuring the Trial Story to the Jury," says Gus about the sessions. "I also demonstrated the use of Jury Focus Groups to help identify in advance the impact and sequence of evidence. Focus Groups really help the trial practitioner understand how to weigh the impact of evidence, and how to build the story through the presentation of evidence," Gus adds.
