The Trial Academy is the only trial technique seminar in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin specifically designed for the defense lawyer. Each student is videotaped while conducting part of the trial, and each receives a copy of that videotape upon conclusion of the Trial Academy.
The Trial Academy is an excellent means of providing “on your feet” experience for lawyers. Students are responsible for coming to the academy prepared to conduct the entire defense of the trial, and will be provided materials in advance, including investigative materials and articles on trial advocacy.
This year’s academy will be held at the Star Plaza Hotel in Merrillville on Sept. 28-29. For additional information, contact Lisa Mortier, executive director of DTCI, at LMortier@dtci.org.•
