The DCBA Trial Advocacy Program is back and will have instructors with extensive litigation and trial experience teaching and assisting a vast array of students from all different levels of experience and practice areas. This workshop provides a great primer from the inexperienced rookie nervous about jumping into trial by fire to the wily veteran simply looking to polish his/her skills.
The class offers real life scenarios involving almost everything an attorney can expect during the trial involving many different types of cases. This 4-week program runs every Saturday from 8am-12pm beginning February 25th. Students can expect to participate in every aspect of a trial concluding with a mock trial on November 19th. From voir dire to closing argument, participants will have each part of the trial broken down with hands-on training in small groups which will assuredly make any attorney much better prepared and ready for their next (or very first) trial.
Each week of the program qualifies for 4 hours CLE credit for a total of 16 credits upon completing the full program.
The cost for the full program is $425 for DCBA members and $475 for non-members.
The program will meet on the following dates:
Saturday February 25th 8am-12pm
Saturday March 4th 8am-12pm
Saturday March 11th 8am-12pm
Saturday March 18th 8am-12pm
