Graphic: Litigation Skills Series

Practice makes progress. That’s why most trainings in our Litigation Skills Series are interactive, featuring both demonstrations and a chance to get on your feet to practice your skills. Our faculty are experienced, talented, and devoted to pro bono and public-interest lawyers. Past faculty has included judges from DC Superior Court and DC Court of Appeals, and lawyers from the Department of  Justice, Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, Legal Aid Society for the District of Columbia, Children’s Law Center, and the Network for Victim Recovery of DC.

Our trainings are comprehensive, public-interest focused, and affordable – they cost far less than comparable trainings offered in Washington, DC.
