  • Using Asian Taiji Theory as a New Useful Paradigm for Successful Legal Strategy and Trial Practice Bennie Moten AB
    To 7:30 AM
    +

    Most people are familiar with the Taiji (yin/yang) diagram, but few understand the underlying
    practical philosophy behind it. This philosophy, which is over 2,500 years old, forms the basis of
    the strategy of overcoming superior force by using the force against itself. It is the basis for the
    military classic, The Art of War, which is still taught at West Point today, despite developments of
    modern technological warfare. Its principles and practice are workable in every confrontational
    situation, especially the American legal system. It involves understanding your case and that
    of your opponent and avoiding the opponent’s strengths and capitalizing on the opponents’
    weaknesses. Expand your mind and increase your chances of success by thinking out of the box
    and learning the benefits of ancient wisdom still practical today.
