The Ten Most Wanted: Keys to Admitting and Excluding Evidence

On March 14th Attorney Richard Brown joined other well-respected members of the Connecticut Bar to present “The Ten Most Wanted: Keys to Admitting and Excluding Evidence.”  This seminar, which was organized by the Hartford County Bar Association and hosted by the Hartford law office of Shipman & Goodwin, was geared towards showing attendees the practical application of the rules of evidence.  During each of ten sessions one presenter would act as a witness while two others acted in the roles of the attorney offering the evidence and the attorney opposing the offer in a courtroom setting.  Mock arguments were heard before the Honorable Susan Q. Cobb and the Honorable Hope C. Seeley.  Attorney Brown’s presentation focused on the admission of medical, hospital and forensic/laboratory reports.
