Would you recommend National Institute for Trial Advocacy?

This was an awesome opportunity that I truly enjoyed and highly recommend to anyone with a heart for advocacy. This event by all means possible was an effective representation of NITA'S mission statement. It was formatted and prepared with professionalism fitting for a "mock" trial, which at times I forgot it was. I felt like I was in a well thought out production of "Matlock" with all legit performers...lol. I commend this organization for affording this type of opportunity to those in this field because it was comforting, yet not passive. I gained clarity of the knowledge of certain jargon and proceedings that I've become familiar with. I would also recommend this opportunity to high school seniors and interns, if possible. Understanding could be had for any level of assisting with the rights of others and there were learning opportunities from beginning to end. Well done, NITA.
