For Lawyers   Advocates

Justice for our clients...
that’s what you’re about. And to accomplish this, you believe that your work must be of exceptional quality. Trial & Hearing Skills Training is designed especially for you, legal services and public interest workers, with its positive, personalized attention, cutting-edge learning methods and outstanding faculty.

Trial and Hearing Skills Training focuses on presenting and arguing facts in a variety of court and hearing contexts. The only training of its kind, we cover the fundamentals plus give you the tools to “flex with the forum” so you are equally effective before the judge who adheres strictly to each and every rule and one who lets everything in and examines all the witnesses first. The training concludes with lawyers doing a jury trial while advocates do an administrative hearing -- in such a realistic setting that the real thing pales by comparison.

Join us for a powerful, unforgettable experience!
