Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

D. Todd Smith Presents at Inaugural “Ignite SBOT” Program

D. Todd Smith was one of ten featured speakers at the first-ever “Ignite SBOT” program, which took place on June 20, 2013 during the State Bar’s Annual Meeting in Dallas. Smith’s topic was “Taking the Paper Out of Your Law Practice.”

Ignite® talks are five-minute presentations accompanied by 20 slides, which auto-advance every 15 seconds. Once an Ignite® presentation begins, the slides start advancing and do not stop until the speaker’s time is up.

“I enjoyed the challenge of this format,” Smith said. “With so much information to cover in such a short time, there was very little room for error.”

Video and slides from Smith’s presentation are accessible via the links provided. An interview Smith gave shortly after the session is available here.
