Think you could use some Trial Ad instruction to improve your skills? Or would you like to help out? Here's a notice from the June 2009 issue of De Novo, the newsletter of the Washington State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division:
Fall 2009 – Trial Advocacy Program Seeks Committee Volunteers and Participants
The Trial Advocacy Program (TAP) offers members of the WYLD an opportunity to improve their litigation skills in both the civil and criminal justice fields, and acquire trial experience. The TAP provides a unique opportunity to interact with and learn from more experienced practitioners, and to network with other young lawyers. The TAP is an intensive two-weekend program emphasizing jury trials, and includes lectures, discussion groups, mock trials, exercises, and general education and instruction in courtroom trial practice.
Additional details and registration information will be available in July 2009. For more information, or to volunteer as a committee member, contact Brian Halcomb, WYLD liaison, at brianh [at] wsba.org.
