Upcoming CPD Programs



Learning By Doing

The Advocates' Society programs offer the critical component of 'learning-by-doing' skill based workshops where participants receive the benefit of hands-on, practical learning in a safe and supportive environment. The participants acquire advocacy training in skills workshops taught by our trained faculty. This practical training provides advocates with renewed advocacy skills and confidence in the courtroom. We welcome your suggestions for future programs.
