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 videotaped critique of each participant`s performance. Participants will spend time reviewing the fact pattern and working the case information that is used daily. Both faculty and participants will prepare as they would for trial.
THE EXPERIENCE OF THE TRIAL ADVOCACY SKILLS COLLEGE
While much work is required, the atmosphere is most enjoyable and provides the perfect setting for learning trial skills. Proper courtroom dress is recommended. Certificates of completion will be awarded to participants who attend all portions of the program.
