Summer Trial Institute

Wyoming Summer Trial Institute Dates: August 9 - 21, 2020

University of Wyoming College of Law offers a Summer Trial Institute for a learn-by-doing experienceThe Summer Trial Institute is a two week long, intensive course that involves leading trial attorneys from across Wyoming 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 by receiving direct feedback from peers or future employers.  The course culminates with the students trying a jury trial in front of sitting Wyoming judges who have volunteered to the program.

This program is part of the Trial Practice program at UW 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.
