TASC: Trial Advocacy Skills College Has Been Completed Please Join us Next Year

Witness on the stand in court room being questioned by a lawyer


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 video critique of each participant`s performance. Participants will spend time reviewing the fact pattern, working the case information and prepare each day as they would for a real trial.


While much work is required, the atmosphere is very enjoyable and provides the perfect setting for learning trial skills. Proper courtroom dress is recommended. Certificates of completion will be awarded to participants who attend all portions of the program.


The program features a mix of hands-on, learn-by-doing exercises and lectures designed to improve trial advocacy in the areas of:

- case analysis and communication skills

- jury selection

- opening statements

- introducing evidence

- direct and cross-examination

- examining expert witnesses

- exhibits and demonstrative evidence

- impeachment

- closing arguments

- professional responsibility (ethics)

to participants who attend all portions of the program.
