Notre Dame Intensive Trial Advocacy Program Jump Starts Skills Training
A week prior to the beginning of this fall semester, NDLS’s common areas were already abuzz with students conferring and debating. In the hallways, seminar rooms, and classrooms, nationally known trial lawyers and judges were observing student pre-trial performances and asking penetrating questions.
This has been the new normal ever since the Notre Dame Intensive Trial Advocacy (ITA) Program began in the spring of 2004. ITA students and faculty return to school a week early each semester so that they can dedicate themselves to their trial workshops all day, every day, without distraction.
