The National Employment Lawyers Association’s Trial Boot Camp is an intensive three-day skills-based program specifically designed for plaintiffs’ employment lawyers at all levels of trial experience. The Boot Camp will feature interactive demonstrations and presentations on successful techniques and strategies for trying employment cases, as well as mock proceedings designed to mimic the rigorous pace and schedule of trial. Topics covered will include voir dire, direct and cross-examination of witnesses, closing arguments, and more.
