During Irving Younger’s illustrious career, tens of thousands of lawyers, judges, law students and even lay people packed meeting rooms to hear his exceptional presentations on trial practice and advocacy. That popularity endures.
Following undergraduate studies at Harvard, Younger earned his law degree from New York University Law School. During his career, he served as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and was Judge of the Civil Court of the City of New York. He worked in three private firms, including the Washington D.C. firm of Williams & Connelly. Younger was also a Professor of Law at New York University Law School and at the University of Minnesota School of Law.
Throughout his distinguished career, Younger was at the forefront in his commitment to the legal profession, writing countless articles for major law and lay journals and recording seven CLE programs and five speeches, available on audio and video exclusively from P.E.G.®
Younger’s wide and varied background, together with his dynamic talent, provide a universal appeal that is the basis for his unparalleled reputation for excellence in continuing legal education.
Professor Steve Easton introduces this program by updating the few changes in law and procedure that have been enacted since the original Irving Younger recording.
With ever-increasing frequency, the outcome of litigation depends upon the skill of counsel in dealing with expert witnesses. Lawyers must have a well-honed ability to present expert witnesses and attack their credibility. Combining the laws of evidence and procedure while integrating the craft of trial advocacy, Younger raises and then answers each of the major questions you must contend with in the course of preparing and trying an expert witness issue.
