Sharpen Your Skills At Trial Boot Camp

Our intensive three-day skills-based program is specifically designed for plaintiffs’ employment lawyers at all levels of trial experience. The Boot Camp will feature interactive demonstrations and presentations on successful techniques and strategies for trying employment cases, as well as mock proceedings designed to mimic the rigorous pace and schedule of trial.

Both Advocates and Campers will be assigned to a Trial Team based on experience level. Each Trial Team will be led by the same Trial Team Leader over the course of the three-day Boot Camp. A common fact pattern based on an actual case will be used for the skill building workshops and mock trials.

Boot Camp helped me realize how to bring my case to life before a jury.
I learned several techniques that
I believe will greatly enhance my
trial skills and presentation
to the benefit of my clients.
