You and I see many invitations to commercial webinars in our inbox. Some introduce a topic you know little about. Some give you an introduction to a person or company. Many are fairly elementary, such as “how to use twitter as a marketing tool.” Others are orientations – like our lawyers’ old friend, AmJur, purposed to enumerate a large number of topics within a broad field. An example would be “educating participants about the various types and stages of whistle-blower claims” (in 90 minutes). In general most webinars that pop into your inbox are tangentially related to something in your zone of interests. What do you do? Save them for after-hours to delete or sample.
They are ubiquitous.
Ours are different. Here at NITA our method is to help lawyers in direct and immediate ways, giving you a menu of choices. So too for our NITA webcasts.
If you miss a live webcast, you will find it recorded (free these days) and ready for you to view online, on demand, just as it was broadcast live. (Sorry you can’t ask the speaker questions unless you go live.)
These are not elementary or orienting types of teaching. Like all NITA offerings, we create them as another way to learn. Some examples? You can focus for the hour on a detailed lecture and practitioner’s advice about Rule 30(b)(6) depositions, presented by the authors of our NITA’s master book on the subject – The Effective Deposition. You can engage in a field of expertise through our studio interview of one of the nation’s foremost forensic psychiatrists, thinking through your work with such experts in consulting and trial settings.
Whatever topic you choose from our menu of prior NITA webcasts, you will engage specifically, deeply, and clearly.
Oh yes, we do end each NITA webcast with a reminder of how our live programs help you. In our live programs, YOU are doing the speaking, gesturing, smiling, and showing as if to the judge or jury. Guided, critiqued, taught, reinforced. You grow.
Don’t let this knowledge escape your attention.
