2018 Trial College Graduates

The Arizona College of Trial Advocacy wrapped up this year's College, adding 23 graduates to its roll. The emphasis of the College is on the student's preparation and presentation of a civil case, from the beginning of the trial to the closing argument. The first four days included small group presentations and exercises on direct and cross examinations, opening and closing statements, and voir dire. The College concluded with a mock trial in Superior Court.

Congratulations to the Class of 2018!
