Trial & Hearing
Skills Training

For Lawyers   Advocates

How You値l Learn
People learn best by practicing, getting feedback and practicing again. We create an informal, collaborative atmosphere where you have plenty of practice opportunities geared to your expertise level. Most of the time you値l be working in practice groups of 8-10 people where you値l receive feedback from trainers and participants alike.  The event ends with lawyers conducting a jury trial while advocates conduct an administrative hearing. You値l leave the training more skilled, aware of your strengths and weaknesses and armed with practical ways to continue building your skills.

As a hands-on experiential learning program, Trial & Hearing Skills layers concepts and information beginning with online exercises and continuing through the face-to-face event. For everyone to reap its full benefit, participants must complete online exercises and attend the entire training.
