21st Annual TASC – Trial Advocacy Skills College – Mar. 15-18

Lawyers who attend this powerful training develop trial skills by practicing under the guidance of some of Indiana`s most experienced lawyers and judges in a simulated, friendly courtroom environment. This program is designed to develop the basic trial advocacy skills for lawyers with limited litigation experience while providing experienced trial lawyers an opportunity to sharpen their skills. The teaching method also uses faculty demonstrations and videotaped critique of each participant`s performance. Participants will need to spend time reviewing the fact pattern and working the case information that is used daily. Both faculty and participants will prepare as they would for trial. To Register for the 2018 TASC, Click Here.

While much work is required, the atmosphere is most enjoyable and provides the perfect setting for learning trial skills. Attendees will be introduced to a mix of hands-on, learn-by-doing exercises and lectures to improve trial advocacy in the areas of:

Case Analysis & Communication Skills
 Jury Selection
Opening Statements
Direct & Cross Examination
Examining Expert Witnesses
Exhibits & Demonstrative Evidence
Impeachment & Rehabilitation
Closing Arguments
Professional Responsibility (Ethics)
