TRIAL “CAMP” Lawyers who attend this powerful training develop trial skills by practicing, under the guidance of some of Indiana`s most experienced lawyers and judges, in a simulated, friendly courtroom environment. This program is designed to develop the basic trial advocacy skills for lawyers with limited litigation experience while providing experienced trial lawyers an opportunity to sharpen their skills. The teaching method also uses faculty demonstrations and video critique of each participant`s performance. Participants will spend time reviewing the fact pattern, working the case information and prepare each day as they would for a real trial. THE EXPERIENCE While much work is involved, the atmosphere is very enjoyable and provides the perfect setting for learning trial skills. Proper courtroom dress is recommended.
