NITA Opportunity for 3Ls and new grads

The National Institute for Trial Advocacy, NITA, is looking for 3L students and new graduates to act as Student Attorneys (based on a simple fact pattern which will be provided), playing the role of an attorney and a witness as though they were before a court and jury.

 Opportunity to polish your trial skills

 Monetary stipend of $100 ($50 per day)

 CLE credit given if you are an attorney

 Preparation materials will be emailed

 Full participation is preferred

The goal of the Teacher Training program participants is to learn or upgrade their teaching and critiquing skills. Participants in the program (who may be professors, partners in a law firm, or government attorneys), will critique the student attorneys’ presentations. After they critique the student attorneys, the program faculty will critique them. Each student attorney will be placed on a team and assigned to a specific section of participants and faculty.

If you are interested, please call Christine McHugh at NITA, 303.953.6819 or e-mail at

*Please note that full participation is required. Friday, November 3, 2017 – Times TBD Saturday, November 4, 2017 – Times TBD
