The National Attorneys General Training & Research Institute
Trial Advocacy for Child Protection and Welfare for OAG-WA
This enlightening four-day mobile advocacy program is intended to enhance the participants’ litigation 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. Unlike other trial advocacy programs, which culminate with a “trial,” this program focuses on discrete phases of child protection advocacy proceedings, including the preparation, direct, and cross-examination of expert witnesses. The basic version of this program is intended for attorneys with little or no hearing or trial experience. The advanced version of this program is intended for attorneys with more extensive hearing or trial experience. This program is intended for attorneys who handle child protection advocacy cases. This program is not recommended for attorneys who handle other types of cases.
