The Trial Advocacy Program at American University Washington College of Law ("WCL") is offering a Litigation Skills Summer Institute designed for both practitioners (CLE) and qualified law students (credit_ interested in mastering litigation skills.  The flexible two week program consists of three courses and a cutting-edge Digital Presentations Workshop.  The courses are offered on nights and weekends and participants may take one, two or all offerings.
Fact and Expert Witness Depositions: Two separate intensive courses that include short lectures and demonstrations by faculty on how to prepare for, take, and defend depositions followed by in-class depositions by participants and webcast review.   (1 credit each)
Civil Trial Advocacy: Participants learn how to prepare and conduct direct and cross-examinations, deliver effective opening statements and closing arguments, make timely objections, and lay the proper foundation to admit evidence during the course of a trial, concluding with a full mock trial before a sitting judge and citizen jurors. (2 credits)
Digital Presentations Workshop: A workshop that includes instruction on effective ways to incorporate digital presentations in opening statements, direct examinations, and closing arguments followed by in-class presentations by participants with individualized critiques by faculty.
