For the 8th Consecutive Year, Original Firm’s Founding Partners Join with NY’s Leading Litigators, Advocates and Judges for Program at Cornell Law School
The Founding Partners of the original firm of Collins, McDonald & Gann will once again be brought together as they serve as Distinguished Faculty at the upcoming New York State Bar Association Young Lawyers Section Trial Academy. Rick Collins, Marc Gann and former partner the Hon. Robert (Bob) McDonald – who ascended to the bench in January, 2016 and now serves in the prestigious role of New York State Supreme Court Justice – will be joining with other top professionals in the New York legal community for this important annual event, which will take place this year from April 5th through April 9th at Cornell Law School in Ithaca, NY.
This is the eighth consecutive year that the original firm’s Founding Partners will be serving as Distinguished Faculty at the Trial Academy. The NYSBA Trial Academy is a five-day trial techniques program to teach, advance and improve the courtroom skills of young and new lawyers, with an emphasis on direct participation. The Trial Academy provides a unique opportunity for attorneys to learn from and make connections with NYSBA leadership and leading litigators, advocates and judges from every region of New York, and is designed to help young and new lawyers gain valuable trial skills.
As Distinguished Faculty, the three will once again offer their insight into criminal law and trial techniques to young and new lawyers, and will be providing attendees with one-on-one critiques and feedback on trial skills learned throughout the program. In addition, Rick Collins will once again be a featured speaker on the first day of the program, addressing the topic of Opening Statements in criminal cases.
Once again, Rick and Marc are looking forward to joining with former partner Judge McDonald and other leaders in the New York law community for this annual New York State Bar Association event that each year provides a great learning experience for young and new attorneys.
