View the  2024 Litigation Skills Series: Trial Advocacy Full Schedule here.

We will focus on the four fundamental trial skills: Opening Statements, Direct Examinations, Cross-Examinations, and Closing Arguments.  Each topic will begin with a lecture by an expert trainer and a demonstration by skilled litigators showing how to put the lesson into practice. Then, we will move to small group breakout rooms where each attendee will get up and practice the skill of the day. Breakout room facilitators will offer individualized, constructive feedback to each participant. Attendees should plan to spend some time between each session to prepare for the on-your-feet breakout sessions.

We are so excited to bring this training back in person! Our in person sessions offer the incredible individualized practice and feedback. You will be able to practice every part of litigation with experienced attorneys.

Our fact pattern features a Domestic Violence CPO case, but you need not know anything about substantive law in this area to benefit from the training.

For Washington Council of Lawyers members, this comprehensive Trial Advocacy training costs just $135. For non-members, the cost is $235. (Join Washington Council of Lawyers to take advantage of the discounted member rates.)

Scholarships are available thanks to the generosity of the D.C. Bar Foundation. To apply for a scholarship, please complete this online scholarship form.

CLE credits are pending for this training for CA, NY, NJ.
