Summer Trial Institute


The Summer Trial Institute is a two week long, intensive 3 credit course that involves leading trial attorneys from across the state and the country to mentor law students in their in-trial skills. This "learn by doing" course teaches students trial skills by practicing in a court room with seasoned lawyers, and be receiving direct feedback from peers or future employers. The course culminates with the students trying a jury trial in front of sitting Alaska judges who have volunteered to the program.

This program is part of the Trial Practice program at the University of Wyoming College of Law, and is made possible by the collaborative efforts of the College of Law, the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Board of Trial Advocates. 

The cost for the course is a $2,500 program fee which covers housing and meals during the course, plus tuition for the course at the current Wyoming in-state and out-of-state tuition rates. (see program details and cost for more details).

*A non-refundable $500 seat deposit is required upon registration. The seat deposit will be applied to the program fee and tuition upon the start of the course.

This program will be held only if a sufficient numbers of students register and pay the seat deposit by January 31, 2017. If the program is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, your seat deposit will be refunded to you.
