48th Annual Trial Academy - Canceled

Saturday, July 25, 2020 - Friday, July 31, 2020
All Day Event
Stanford Law School
Palo Alto, CA
United States

The IADC Trial Academy has been canceled due to coronavirus.

Due to health concerns related to COVID-19, Stanford has canceled all summer programs. So the upcoming Trial Academy is canceled as well. While we are disappointed that we can’t offer the “crown jewel” of the IADC this year, it is the right decision by the University. All registrants will receive full refunds which will be processed in the coming days. Rest assured, the IADC Trial Academy will be back in 2021 to provide the best hands on trial education available.


The IADC Trial Academy program is designed to enhance advocacy skills and provide the opportunity for trial experience. Major emphasis is placed on the learning-by-doing method of instruction.

The Academy provides intensive, comprehensive and participatory education to young defense trial lawyers. Its faculty members are experienced, well-recognized trial lawyers with extensive trial experience. They are drawn from different geographic areas and diverse practices, styles and personalities. Faculties and directors rotate on an annual basis.

If you are an IADC member interested in participating in the Trial Academy as a member of its faculty, please fill out the Faculty Interest Form and send it to Amy O'Maley McGuire, Assistant Director of Legal Programming, at
