Famed trial lawyer Roy Black was our inaugural presenter at Great Legal Storytellers in February 2012, speaking to a capacity crowd in our ceremonial courtroom for his main presentation, and then, in the advocacy workshop to follow, to just a small group of our students who were privileged to work with Roy on the art of cross examination. In December 2014, we were privileged to again host Roy, this time as our featured CLE@FIU presenter on cross examination.

Famed trial attorney and Michael Jackson defender Tom Mesereau was our second Great Legal Storyteller in February 2013. Tom spent two days with us – the first, on campus with our students, including a private workshop in our small courtroom on cross examination. The following day, Tom graciously agreed to give another presentation, this one to a packed ceremonial courtroom at the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building to our local bench and bar.
