A Day With Oliver Wendell Holmes: How to Make a Life in the Law

The Art of the Courtroom

This was the first CLE in which I felt to be in the presence of a true master. I left this seminar entirely refreshed and refocused. Thank you! A novel, unorthodox approach to litigation...contrarian, counterintuitive. Mr. Barton was fantastic! Top notch! He was prepared, intense and conscientious. Good job. Outstanding. Profound ideas and outstanding communicator. Very intuitive - new - different - insightful. Educational, entertaining, informative. More than a "war story" speaker. Best seminar in years.
