WHAT IS TRIAL ACADEMY?

Roberts Trial Academy is an annual program organized in conjunction with the Young Lawyers Section and the U.S, District Court for the Western District of Missouri that is designed to teach new lawyers trial advocacy skills. The program provides participating attorneys with training and guidance from experienced litigators and judges and allows them to practice trial techniques in a realistic courtroom setting.
Led by United States Magistrate Judge Robert E. Larsen, training sessions cover voir dire, opening statments, direct and cross examinations, evidentiary foundations, expert witnesses, and closing arguments.
