Workshops

The Trial Advocacy Program hosts skills workshops each fall. All students taking classes within the program, as well as Mock Trial Honor Society members, are required to attend. The workshops typically focus on direct and cross examinations. The workshops are led by experienced practitioners and faculty. All students who would like to learn more about the courtroom are welcome.
