Federal CJA Trial Skills Academy
The skills-based Academy has been a tremendous success. This program focuses on (1) the use of a trial advocacy process to facilitate the development of a persuasive, fact-based theory and supporting themes, and (2) the advocacy skills necessary to persuasively advance that theory and those themes throughout the trial. A very experienced and skilled faculty leads this program through a series of plenary sessions and workshops. Elements of effective litigation advocacy skills are presented in the plenaries. Participants then engage in hands-on practice of those skills and receive feedback in small group workshops.
Participation is limited to 66 attendees.
