Join us for the 5th Jere F. White Jr. Trial Advocacy Institute
October 3, 2022
Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC is proud to honor our late founding partner by sponsoring the 5th Jere F. White Jr. Trial Advocacy Institute.
This year, the continuing legal education (CLE) program will feature a "who's who" of skilled litigators and fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Hosted at the Sheraton Hotel on November 4th, the one-day seminar will feature keynote speaker Senator Doug Jones and highlight both plaintiff and defendant perspectives.
Held in honor of Lightfoot founding partner Jere White, the Trial Advocacy Institute serves as the primary fundraising event for the Jere F. White Jr. Fellows Program at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law, White’s alma mater. Prior to his death in 2011, White and his wife, Lyda, established the program, which recruits outstanding students with strong academic credentials, a history of leadership and a commitment to service. The program develops lawyers who share these ideals that were so important to White.
Lightfoot is proud to have six American College of Trial Lawyers fellows, partners Warren Lightfoot, Sam Franklin (former president), Harlan Prater, Chris King, Mike Bell and Adam Peck.
The program is eligible for CLE credit, the amount of which depends on where an attorney is licensed. Learn more about the event and complete your registration here.
