On March 9, 2012 a diverse group of experts in the legal profession will gather at the DoubleTree in Missoula for a full-day Continuing Legal Education seminar entitled “From the Courtroom to the Classroom: A Multi-Dimensional Look at the Legal Profession in the 21st Century.” Headlining the event is world-renowned trial lawyer and educator, Ed Moriarity. Born in Butte, Montana, Mr. Moriarity has practiced law for nearly four decades in the American West. He started his practice in Cheyenne, Wyoming and went on to work with famed trial lawyer, Gerry Spence, as a partner in his Jackson Hole firm, Spence, Moriarity & Shockey. Mr. Moriarity worked with Mr. Spence when he defended former Filipina politician Imelda Marcos.
Enthusiastically willing to share his trial law experience, Mr. Moriarity is a frequent featured speaker at legal conferences and events. He also taught at both the Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming and the Wyoming Trial School at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Mr. Moriarity now heads the firm of Moriarity, Badaruddin & Booke, LLC with offices in Salt Lake City, Utah, Wilson and Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Three Forks and Missoula, Montana.
