As the “Crown Jewel” of the IADC, the Trial Academy is one of the oldest and most respected programs for developing defense trial advocacy skills. Perfect for those looking to learn and practice the fundamentals and for those seeking to refine their techniques and tactics and take their trial skills to the next level, students will learn by doing.
This seven-day, intensive workshop blends faculty instruction and demonstration with individual student participation in the setting of a mock trial.
Save the date for IADC's 50th Annual Trial Academy! The Academy will be held August 2 to 9, 2024 at Stanford Law School in Palo Alto, California USA.
