Trials of the Century Will Teach and Entertain

Albuquerque, N.M. – The State Bar of New Mexico Trial Practice Section will present Trials of the Century Dec. 15 at the State Bar Center in Albuquerque.

Featured presenter Salt Lake City Attorney Todd Winegar is a frequent continuing legal education speaker and practicing attorney who emphasizes civil trial litigation. He has been involved in some of the larger cases in his home state. His experience includes professional malpractice (both the plaintiff and defense side), product liability actions involving para and quadriplegia, and a Minuteman missile accident.

Trials of the Century will show actual trial film and trial re-creations that both teach
and entertain, with the emphasis on the art of cross-examination and final argument. Wingar will cover the O.J. Simpson Trial, the Scopes Monkey Trial, the Lindbergh Kidnapping, the Nuremburg War Trials, Leopold and Loeb, and the LA. Times Bombing Trial. The final program will reveal Winegar’s pick as the “Trial of the Century.”
