If you don’t think there is enough diverse representation in our courtrooms, or if you believe there is a shortage of women trial lawyers, change it by being there. If you don’t think you have the skills to try a case, take this program. This training will be available twice this year in February and July. You can take either one. Learn the skills and get into court through our BASF and JDC pro bono programs.


  • Develop trial skills in an experiential learning environment
  • Learn from trial masters and judges about effective presentation skills
  • Practice opening statements, closing arguments, direct and cross examinations
  • Receive coaching and critiques to enhance your performance
  • Experience immediate improvement in two days
