Ken Levinson will be speaking at the 2020 Virtual Annual Convention of the Ohio Association for Justice on August 13th.
Some of the most talented trial lawyers from across the United States will gather–virtually–to speak at this event hosted by Ohio trial lawyers. Levinson will be giving a presentation called “The Top Non-Law Books Trial Lawyers Need to Read,” which will include titles covering an array of subjects, from implicit bias, decision making, and strategy, to psychology and even the impact of Second City improvisation.
“I love sharing my favorite non-law books that can help trial lawyers,” Levinson said, explaining that he is also happy the convention has been open to “new and non-traditional presentations.”
“They were just so generous and open to letting me take this topic about non-legal books and run with it, and I can’t wait,” he said.
Other speeches given will include “Fun with Shrinks: Psychological Evidence in Personal Injury” by Jonathan Karon, “Hollywood Ethics: Do They Ever Get it Right?” by Charles Kettlewell,” and “Know When to Hold ‘Em–Know When to Shred ‘Em–Don’t Gamble with Client Files” by Gretchen Mote. Mote is the Director of Loss Prevention at Ohio Bar Liability Insurance Company, and Joseph Caliguiri, who will be presenting “Ethics and the Practice of Law: What Would You Do for $357?” is Disciplinary Counsel at the Supreme Court of Ohio.
With this year’s annual convention being virtual for the first time, Levinson said there are both pros and cons to the new set-up.
“It will certainly be more challenging with a virtual conference and less in-person interaction,” he said, “but a positive is that since attorneys don’t have to travel, we can have more attendees.”
There were also be a safety session dedicated to trucking during the convention, with presentations including “Strategies to Maximizing the Catastrophic Truck Case” by Peter Kestner, and “Accident Reconstruction in Trucking Cases: Initial Perception, Actual Perception, and Reaction,” by James Crawford.
“I’m teaching other lawyers that do what I do how to better represent their clients,” Levinson continued. “The key is that we’re all in this together in order to be better for our clients.”
The plenary speaker highlight will be “Hidden Damages That Can Add Millions to Your Cases” by Steven Gursten.
The event will be hosted on Zoom from August 12th to the 14th, and qualifies for half of necessary biennial CLEs while giving attendees opportunities to network with plaintiff’s attorneys from around the country.
