About the Program

Mastery of litigation skills is the hallmark of both the American College of Trial Lawyers and Temple’s Advocacy Program. This 4 hour CLE, with one ethics credit and three substantive credits, will teach advanced advocacy skills. Skills covered will include the art of non-verbal communication; a master class in opening statements; ethics and civility in the litigation process; and an hour on mastery of evidence law and persuasion. This is the third of what is an annual collaboration between the ACTL and Temple Advocacy.
