From the event website:
As a participant in the Chicago Trial Program, you will use NITA’s learning-by-doing method to practice and perfect your skills in the challenging arts of trial advocacy and persuasion.
In a simulated trial setting, you will be performing:
Opening statements and closing arguments
Direct and cross examinations
Following your live and digitally recorded performances, you will be given feedback and critique from the renowned NITA faculty. There will be a bench trial in the middle of the week and to conclude the program, you will conduct a full jury trial, then have a chance to ask the jurors questions and hear their feedback. You will be able to choose a criminal or civil case file for your performances and trial.
