The seminar, which will take place virtually this year, will feature 29 different programs over the course of three days. All programs are sectioned off into 90-minute webinars, which will allow viewers to choose which webinars to attend based on their individual interests.
The Boardwalk program hosts many top trial lawyers from across the country as guest speakers, in addition to over 1,000 attendees from all over the East Coast. Attendees often return year after year because of how well-known the program is in regards to bringing in such great educational resources for lawyers.
“They set the standard very high with their talented staff and top trial lawyer volunteers,” Levinson said.
Levinson’s address, which will take place during the trucking-centered portion of the seminar, is called “Direct of Trucking Plaintiff Expert,” and will focus on the topic of the importance of expert witnesses at trial. When presenting an expert witness during a trucking case, “witnesses help a jury understand some of the complexities of these cases,” Levinson said, “like reconstructing a multi-vehicle truck crash, or how a professional truck driver should operate an 80,000 pound truck in specific circumstances.”
Other segments of the seminar include presentations such as “Commercial Driver’s License Manual and Industry Customs: How to Use Them” by Joseph A. Fried, “Unique Approaches to Deposing the Truck Driver” by Eric Fong, and “Investigative Tools for Trucking Cases” by Jordan M. Jones.
“The key to successful trial lawyer programs is that the best and most successful attorneys in the country provide real-life and practical guidance for lawyers to best help their clients,” said Levinson, saying this guidance should include “things attendees can use in their law practice and in their cases right away, like trial tactics–the best ways to prepare and present their cases at trial.”
Levinson’s presentation begins at 3:00 pm, and he said he loves speaking at events like this seminar “because the audience is engaged and interested, and I always learn from other speakers and attendees.” He also explained that he finds it especially beneficial to see how his fellow truck crash attorneys handle the complex issues that arise during challenging cases.
‘Trucking 2020: From Intake to Trial’ will take place online Thursday, August 6th from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, and has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 10.80 hours of CLE credit toward certification in civil trial law.
