A joint project of NITA, the National Association of Counsel for Children, and the Rocky Mountain Children's Law Center, this intensive program is designed to meet the specialized needs of lawyers representing the interests of children, with a focus on developing their trial skills. Participants will hone specific skills—and practice new ones—in a simulated trial environment alongside experienced faculty members who will provide constructive feedback and suggestions following every performance.
Each day the program will focus on a new set of trial skills such as mastering case analysis, foundations for testimony, and examining expert witnesses. By the end of the program, participants will dramatically improve their techniques to become more effective advocates and have more confidence in the courtroom. A diverse mix of instructors, including nationally recognized lawyers and judges, creates an environment where participants are challenged to perform to the best of their ability. The program'sfive days are equivalent to the experience of taking several cases to trial.
