Featured Seminar



What is the difference between John Milton (Al Pacino in The Devil’s Advocate, undoubtedly a “bad” lawyer) and Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird, undoubtedly a great lawyer)? Since John Milton relied on his devil-powers to conquer his legal adversaries and Atticus Finch relied on his legal acumen, arguably the difference lies in one’s knowledge of trial strategy. On March 13 from 1:30-4:45pm, come to the Columbus Bar and learn how to be an Atticus Finch.
