For over 45 years NDAA has developed and facilitated exceptional hands-on trial advocacy courses; providing for prosecutors a realistic strategic based training simulating their courtroom experience. NDAA hands-on trial advocacy training includes foundational lectures, demonstrations and guided workshops designed to hone prosecutors’ litigation skills.

This hands-on trial advocacy track is patterned after NDAA’s renowned trial advocacy training, however, refined for this limited 4 hour and 45 min offering. This track is designed for prosecutors with 0-5 years’ experience, however, all prosecutors attending the conference are welcome.

Attendees will work with two scenarios, as experienced faculty members provide overviews of; key aspects of case analysis, theme development and opening statement, trial strategies for direct and cross-examination, and use of visuals.  Attendees will receive hands-on guidance to implement techniques discussed by faculty members in their foundational overviews. Faculty members will manage practice sessions through workshops with exercises that simulate various stages of trial. Attendees will receive immediate constructive feedback following performance exercises and follow up guidance as needed.

Prosecutors interested in participating in this track must indicate this interest pre-conference via response to an email sent by the conference coordinator two weeks before the conference.
