The Faculty of Federal Advocates is proud to offer its Federal Court Trial Advocacy Skills Workshop, with two full-day sessions scheduled for Thursday, February 15 and Friday, March 2, 2018. Participants must participate in both sessions. 

In this unique program, the participants will hone their trial skills and try a fictional case before a U.S. district judge, magistrate judge, or bankruptcy judge. 

The sessions will be conducted concurrently in the United States District Court and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado. Participants will prepare and present a personal injury or fraud case at a mock trial.
The first full-day session on Thursday, February 15 will be devoted to hands-on trial practice training from top Denver litigators. This training will include presentations and practice exercises on effective opening and closing statements, direct examination and cross-examination techniques, introducing exhibits/making and defending objections to evidence, and the use of courtroom technology. Presenters at the training session include Judge Robbie Barr (BarrADR), Lisa Hogan (Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP), John Culver (Benezra & Culver), and Karen Steinhauser (Law Office of Karen Steinhauser).

On Friday, March 2, participants will utilize their newly honed trial skills to present the case to a jury with a U.S. District Court Judge, U.S. Magistrate Judge, or U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge presiding over the full-day mock trial. Each courtroom will also be assigned a faculty member chosen from among Denver's most accomplished civil litigators to provide hands-on and immediate feedback and instruction during the trial. This two-day workshop is a unique and rare opportunity to obtain training, advice and feedback from experts!

*This event is now on a Waitlist. However, we do anticipate that some spots will become available to the waitlist. Click HERE to join the waitlist for the February 15 and March 2 Trial Advocacy Skills Training Workshop*

 

**In exchange for the low enrollment fee for this program, participants will be assigned two cases from the Faculty of Federal Advocates Bankruptcy Pro Bono Program over a two-year period, or will join the United States District Court for the District of Colorado's Civil Pro Bono Panel.**
