The finest trial lawyers and judges in Idaho are available to assist you in the development of trial skills to be used throughout your career. Take this opportunity to train - or retrain - yourself under the tutelage of experienced trial attorneys with whom you may practice and receive pointers on your litigation performance.
This seminar does not have lectures. Instead, mentors provide examples of effective trial practice, and work directly with you to develop the skill. You will observe and then practice skills including voir dire, opening statements, witness examination (direct and cross), authenticating exhibits, impeachment, making objections, and closing arguments. Trial packets and additional information will be sent to participants prior to the seminar. Please note that participants will have to do some work in preparation in advance of the academy dates.
The course is limited to 64 participants - once the 64 spots are filled, prospective participants will be placed on a waiting list. It is suggested that if you wish to register, you should do so as soon as possible. Registration deadline is February 1, 2022.
Litigation Section Members $300.00
