Trial Advocacy Training

Kiersten Houseman

NAGTRI Program Specialist
(202) 326-6264 |

This intensive four-day advocacy program is intended to enhance the participants’ trial skills in a constructive and positive learning environment facilitated by experienced attorneys serving as faculty. The program will contain a mix of topical presentations on various aspects of trial practice, discussion workshops, and "learn-by-doing" workshops. The emphasis in the workshops will be on participant performance of various trial skills followed by constructive faculty critiques. Certain workshops will be video recorded. In these instances, each participant will also participate in a one-on-one review of his/her performance with a third faculty member. The program will conclude with a "trial," for which the participants will be paired in trial teams. This basic program is intended for attorneys with minimal trial experience.
