American College of Trial Lawyers
Diversity in the Courtroom Program
The program took place in Chicago on May 20-22, 2022, and was organized by the ACTL Teaching of Trial and Appellate Advocacy Committee. Registrants learned through a traditional trial advocacy training format, involving learning by doing. Attending lawyers presented opening and closing speeches, conducted direct and cross-examinations of witnesses and tried a case, all based on a tested case file. ACTL Fellows served as faculty, sharing their extensive experience trying difficult civil and criminal cases all across the country.
