Incubator Program lawyer Matt Smith has been awarded a full scholarship to the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) program “Mastering the Art, Science & Craft of Advocacy”. The seven day training program combines the simulation of trial skills with lectures and demonstrations. Participants simulate trial skills and receive critiques on their videotaped performances. The week culminates with two days of jury trial.
NITA pioneered the legal skills learning-by-doing methodology over 40 years ago and remains the ultimate standard in continuing legal education. Matt Smith is an aspiring trial lawyer in his second year in the Incubator Program. His practice focuses on personal injury and employment law.
