UCLA Law – The Magazine of UCLA School of Law, Fall 2014
In October, Barry Cappello ’65 and Leila Noël of Cappello & Noël LLP discussed trial tactics and shared courtroom strategies during a talk as part of the Cappello Courtroom Series: The Art of the Trial. Cappello and Noël, who represent plaintiffs in complex litigation and have obtained jury verdicts in excess of $125 million, talked about some of the tools necessary to become a successful trial lawyer and described a few of the notable cases they have handled.
In March, Barry Cappello also participated in a discussion on alternative dispute resolution, where he talked about how trial skills are critically important in handling and resolving every type of dispute.
The law school inaugurated the Cappello Courtroom Series, which brings leading trial attorneys to the law school to discuss the skills needed to be a successful litigator, in October 2012.
