The opening statement is a plaintiff’s chance to frame an entire case and sometimes can seal a case. Too often, it’s a last-minute afterthought and becomes a rote recitation of facts. This seminar will focus on the power of a persuasive open and how to construct one. It will feature a comparison between the opening statement in Makray v. Perez and a YouTube posting by one of the jurors. The vlog gives a unique insight into the deliberations and how they were influenced by the opening statement. It’s a one of a kind “inside baseball” look.
