Alecia Walters-Hinds, Karen Campbell to Present at DANY Virtual Trial Academy
New York, N.Y. (April 4, 2022) – New York Partners Alecia Walters-Hinds and Karen L. Campbell will participate in the Defense Association of New York (DANY) Trial Academy on April 5 and 7. They will be a part of the Academy’s virtual kick-off, with presentations running each evening from 6:00- 8:00 p.m. ET.
Throughout the academy, trial and appellate attorneys will co-present on each aspect of a trial. On April 5, Ms. Walters-Hinds will present on jury selection, and on April 7, Ms. Campbell will present on direct examination. These presentations will be followed by two in-person mock trials for the participants in this year’s academy. CLE credits are available.
This year’s bootcamp is geared to address the lack of trial experience for mid-level associates and junior partners at defense firms due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s shutdown of courts across the country.
Ms. Campbell is a chair of Lewis Brisbois' General Liability Practice. A trial attorney with 30 years of experience, her practice focuses on defending hotel industry clients against human sex trafficking claims, and litigation under the NY and NJ Child Victims Act.
Ms. Walters-Hinds is a vice-chair of the firm's General Liability Practice. She specializes in handling high exposure and catastrophic injury matters in a range of practice areas, including medical malpractice, toxic tort, construction, transportation, and more.
