From the President 

The Future is Now for the Federation

The FDCC continues to distinguish itself as the pre-eminent defense organization in new and exciting ways.
In Philadelphia we held the first of its kind advanced trial technology training program called Tech U. The Federation is the only organization identifying the latest technologies available for attorneys to use in the courtroom and the training on how to use them.
The 2018 class came to Philly with technology skills ranging from novices to skilled. Each left with the know how to make presentations to mediators, judges and juries in ways they never knew were possible using new technologies.
Hands-on workshops were offered to provide individual training. The participants were then tasked with creating their own mediation presentation, opening statement or closing argument to the group using the different technologies. We were blown away by the talent and creativity that each recipient of the Master Technology Advocate Certificate demonstrated.
