Description: The Trial Advocacy Program is offering a Litigation Skills Summer Institute designed for both practitioners (CLE) and qualified law students (credit) interested in mastering litigation skills. This is an experiential learning program. The flexible two week program consists of four courses. The courses are offered on nights and weekends and participants may take one, two, or all offerings. FACT AND EXPERT WITNESS DEPOSITIONS: Two separate intensive courses that include short lectures and demonstrations by faculty on how to prepare for, take, and defend depositions followed by in-class depositions by participants and webcast review. CIVIL TRIAL ADVOCACY: Participants learn how to prepare and conduct direct and cross- examinations, deliver effective opening statements and closing arguments, make timely objections, and lay the proper foundation to admit evidence during the course of a trial, concluding with a full mock trial before a sitting judge and citizen jurors.
