General admission is $25 or $60 for lawyers seeking 2.0 hours of CLE credit, including one hour of ethics and one hour of professionalism.

During the first hour of the program, Curriden will expound on the legal careers of some of this nation’s most successful trial lawyers, including three local attorneys who will later join him for a panel discussion: Daniel E. Becnel Jr., J.D. ’69; Russ M. Herman; and Arthur A. “Buddy” Lemann III, J.D. ’67.

Curriden will discuss his interviews and subsequent American Bar Association article of seven great trial attorneys from across the country. The audience will hear the extraordinary stories and discover what special characteristics and unique techniques made them stand out in the courtroom.

Educated as a lawyer, Curriden is a senior writer for the ABA Journal, the nation's largest legal publication, and a regular contributor to the New York Times DealBook on matters of corporate and business law. He is the author of “Contempt of Court: The Turn-of-the-Century Lynching that Launched a Hundred Years of Federalism.” He is also a writer in residence at the SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas.
