The Antitrust Law Section of the NYSBA is proud to announce its first Antitrust Trial Training Program and to offer scholarships to permit attendance.  This intensive 3-day hands-on program is geared toward young lawyers with an antitrust background who wish to improve their litigation and trial advocacy skills.

Participants attend lectures on various aspects of trial techniques and then put their learning into practice by examining live witnesses and economic experts, presenting evidence, and making oral arguments.
One-on-one critiques will be provided of the students’ videotaped efforts by a faculty made up of NYSBA Antitrust Law Section Executive Committee members and other leading antitrust practitioners.

Attendance at this event offers up to 27.5 MCLE credit hours  in Skills. The program is transitional and therefore suitable for newly-admitted attorneys.
