This program is intended to provide participants with the basic training necessary for them to serve as faculty for NAGTRI’s trial and litigation skills programs, including such courses as Trial Advocacy and Depositions. The program’s primary goals are to provide participants with an understanding of adult learning theory and afford participants the opportunity to effectively and efficiently convey what they know to program participants using the critiquing methodologies NAGTRI uses in its skills programs. The program will contain presentations on various topics including adult learning theory, NAGTRI’s critiquing methodologies, how to deal with challenging participants, and other program-related issues. The performance workshops will afford participants the opportunity to critique attorney performers in simulated performance room and video review room settings. Faculty evaluates the critiques that participants give the attorney performers and provide the participants with constructive feedback. This program is intended for experienced attorneys. Attorneys must be prepared to serve as faculty for a minimum of two NAGTRI trainings per year.
