Feedback from previous Do a Trial programs:

"The feedback was very valuable. We don't get the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on our advocacy skills very often after law school and this program provides the opportunity to get impartial feedback."


"The actual trial experience was the most valuable for me and it was great to get an opportunity to balance preapred questions with impromptu questions arising during the examinations."


Accredited CPD  

TOTAL CPD: This program contains 2.0 Professionalism Hours and is eligible for up to 6.0 Substantive Hours.

The Advocates' Society has been approved as an Accredited Provider of Professionalism Content by the Law Society of Upper Canada.
