National ABOTA Trial College
The ABOTA National Trial College at Harvard Law School will provide young trial lawyers with intensive training from members of the bench and from accomplished practitioners in the art of being a successful trial lawyer. There will be real-time demonstrations by plaintiff and defense attorneys on all aspects of trial -- from effective trial preparation to convincing opening statements to closing arguments.
Thirty-five Fellows went through the rigors of the inaugural ABOTA Trial College on the campus of Princeton University in 2010. The 2012 ABOTA National Trial College was held at Harvard Law School and plans are underway for the 2014 program to be held there as well. Designed for third- and fourth-year trial attorneys from both sides of the bar, it will consist of four days of intense instruction on technique, moots and critiques by ABOTA members from around the nation, as well as notable judges.
The classes are instructed by experienced faculty members who understand the pressures of trial preparation and courtroom situations. The instruction takes place in a state-of-the art courtroom facility at Harvard Law School. After four days of academic work, students present a mock trial before a jury. Following the trial, participants will view the jury deliberations, and students will receive critiques from the faculty members. A graduation ceremony will be held on the final evening.
The dates for the 2014 ABOTA National Trial College will be announced later in 2013. Please check website for dates.
