Sharing trial experiences

A couple of months ago, I posted a brief note linking to a trial practice blogger's comment that it would be interesting to see more first-hand accounts of freshly completed trials.

Responding to that idea, Maureen Howard wrote me (in an email message she suggested I post):

There was a formal system at the King County Prosecutor's Office for attorneys to share their educational (or sometimes just maddening) experiences after trials. I found this to be immensely helpful and wonder if we could foster some sort of sharing of trial experience post-trial across law firms and agencies for the benefit of our trial advocacy students as well as members of the bar in general. Although historically this "anecdotal wisdom" has been treated fairly proprietarily and shared just within the walls of individual law firms or agencies, the sharing of such experience is really no different that experienced litigators sharing similar knowledge through formal CLEs, etc...

Perhaps this could be an experiment within an experiment?
