The Rothauge & Kaner Women’s Trial Academy©, sponsored by OWLS, is designed for young women litigators with three to six years of experience. During the two-day intensive program, participants will hone their trial skills in a small-group setting where each participant will receive individualized attention. The program will address some of the unique challenges women face in the courtroom and train them to turn perceived disadvantages into strength and winning strategies.
The Academy will be held Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8 on the campus of Willamette University College of Law. The curriculum will be enhanced by “guest coaches” such as judges and trial lawyers, who will offer their expertise.
Trial skills will be developed and honed by hands-on training using facts from an actual case. Participants will conduct mock openings, examinations and closings along with other key parts of the trial. Participants will come away with stronger trial skills and increased confidence in the courtroom.
In order to participate, you must first complete the application form below and submit it to Karie Trujillo no later than Friday, June 3. Participants must be members of the Oregon State Bar and Oregon Women Lawyers. Registration is limited. Cost is $225.
