Practice Video: Madden Jury Charge

Here’s an actual jury charge from a trial. This is great practice! I usually practice Q & A on Sundays. However, since it is almost midnight, and this video is over a half an hour long, it is safe to say that I will be getting a little Sunday jury charge practice as well.

Happy practicing!

Love, Speed, and Accuracy,
