Judge Tana Lin Chambers

Attorney Development

The Court encourages litigants to provide opportunities for less experienced lawyers or lawyers whose identities and/or backgrounds further the diversity of the legal profession to participate in all courtroom proceedings, particularly where they contributed significantly to the preparation. While typically only one lawyer may argue on behalf of a Party or question a witness, the Court may allow multiple attorneys to argue or examine a witness on behalf of a client to achieve this end. Counsel should advise the Court prior to the proceeding if they intend to have multiple lawyers argue a case pursuant to this policy. An experienced attorney may supplement a new lawyer’s arguments or witness examination questions with their own if necessary. Of course, the ultimate decision of who speaks on behalf of the client is for the client and not the Court.
