    • The Importance of the Order of Witnesses to Support Your Trial Theme. All trial lawyers know a theme is crucial to present your case to the jury. The order of witnesses is a valuable tool to convince the jury of the validity of that theme. Patrick O. Dunphy, L’76, Cannon & Dunphy, S.C.

    • Law Reader Roadblocks and How to Write Around Them. Whether lawyers write briefs to a court, memos or letters to others, or contracts between parties, they are trying to persuade their readers—the court, the client, or other counsel—that they’re right. But the reader doesn’t always get this message. In this session, we will look at reader roadblocks: what causes readers to either miss or resist the meaning. And we’ll look at ways to write that consider these reader roadblocks. Lisa Mazzie, Marquette Law School
    • Voting Rights or Voting Wrongs: Enfranchisement in the United States. Women voted in revolutionary America. Yet it took until the 19th Amendment to make it illegal to deny the right to vote based on a citizen’s sex. And then it took the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to remove policies and practices used to limit voting among African Americans and other targeted groups. A discussion tracing enfranchisement from revolutionary days to the present. Kathy L. Nusslock, L’85, Amundsen Davis
    • Seven Smart Strategies for Tax Planning and Charitable Giving in 2024.

This presentation will provide strategies and charitable planning tips to consider when undertaking tax planning in 2024. Catherine Shore Steinhafel, L’89, Marquette University
