The Mentoring and Trial Practice Program is a workshop experience based upon the principle of learning by doing. A small group of newer attorneys, under the guidance of experienced attorneys, are given a set of facts and proceed to the opening statements, direct and cross examinations and finally the closing arguments for trial before a real federal judge.
