It looks like there are still some seats open for the esteemed Arizona College of Trial Advocacy, hosted by the State Bar of Arizona.
The hands-on event runs from July 31 through August 4, at the Black Canyon Conference Center, 9440 N. 25th Ave., Phoenix (see map below).
The Trial College, limited to 48 students, is the flagship program of the Bar’s Section on Trial Practice and Procedure. Here is how Section leaders describe it:
“The College is an intensive, five-day workshop that provides practical hands-on training for trial lawyers. It culminates in a half-day mock trial with live jurors and judges in a Maricopa County Superior Court courtroom. The program is designed to significantly develop and refine the skills necessary for excellence in trial practice.
“Why should this interest you? The College provides a do-it-yourself teaching tool that gives aspiring trial attorneys an opportunity to mentor with top Arizona litigators and judges. Attorneys with personal injury practices can earn 10 points toward an Arizona Board of Legal Specialization in Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation.”
The Trial College Executive Director is Rebecca Albrecht. Co-chairs this year are John Ager, John DiCaro and Bruce G. Macdonald.Follow @azatty
