National Institute of Trial Advocacy

June 22-28, 2014

Ben Berkowitz will serve as a faculty member for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy's Trial Skills program in San Francisco, CA. 

Participants will learn, practice and perfect their skills in the challenging arts of trial advocacy, persuasion and communication, including:

  • Opening statements and closing arguments
  • Direct & cross-examinations (both constructive and destructive)
  • Impeachment and redirect examinations
  • Evidentiary foundations
  • Modern voir dire

The learning-by-doing exercises are supplemented by innovative lectures and trial demonstrations by the faculty. Following your live and digitally recorded performances, you will be given instant feedback and critique (not criticism) from the renowned national NITA faculty of master advocates and trainers.
