National Institute Trial Advocacy Fact Investigation Program - February 6, 2015

Interested in testing your acting skills while learning fact investigation techniques at the same time? If so, this opportunity may be perfect for you!
 
Frost Brown Todd is hosting a NITA Fact Investigation program for their first year associates on Friday, February 6th and is seeking volunteers to participate in this experience.  First year associates from all of Frost Brown Todd's offices will travel to Louisville for this training that will be taught by some of FBT’s knowledgeable attorneys.
 
There will be a little pre-work to read the “script” so you are familiar with the case and are able to answer most questions you may be asked by the attorney. This is a great learning experience.  Even though you will be playing the role of a witness; you will also be able to hear the feedback of the seasoned attorney who will critique the associate.
 
If you are willing to serve as a witness for this program, please contact Sonya Yadon, Attorney Recruiting and Development Manager at syadon@fbtlaw.com
