Trial Boot Camp Advocates
Trial Boot Camp Advocates will be assigned to a Trial Team of four Advocates based on their level of trial experience, which will be led by a Trial Team Leader. Advocates will act as plaintiff and defense counsel and witnesses during two three-hour mock trials, including presenting an opening statement, conducting direct and cross-examinations, and delivering a closing argument, followed by a critique. Intensive preparation and participation is required of Advocates both before and during the three-day Boot Camp.
Trial Boot Campers
Individuals who are interested in learning and acquiring trial advocacy skills by attending the sessions but who do not wish to participate actively as Trial Boot Camp Advocates may register as Trial Boot Campers. Campers will be assigned to Trial Teams based on level of experience.
