  • Learn about PTSD and how it may relate to clients’ legal issues;
  • Partner effectively with mental health professionals; and
  • Develop compelling evidence to support advocacy for individuals affected by PTSD.
Led by a faculty that includes a VA psychologist with extensive clinical expertise in PTSD and lawyers specializing in mental health-related advocacy, this training will provide:
  • An understanding of how trauma and PTSD affect the brain;
  • A description of PTSD symptoms and how they affect people in their day-to-day lives;
  • Discussion of how PTSD symptoms can be relevant in legal proceedings;
  • Guidance for developing relevant information and evidence about PTSD;

      The Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder effectively nullified a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the most effective civil rights law ever enacted. As a result, attorneys and activists play a key role working with voters to protect their rights against discriminatory voting laws. The Voting Rights Institute, a project of ACS, the Campaign Legal Center, and the Georgetown Law Center, has trained nearly 900 lawyers and law students nationwide.
      This is an important training opportunity for lawyers who want to do pro bono work related to voting rights. This training will include an overview of voting rights legislation and case law, examples of the ways in which state and local governments are infringing upon the right to vote, information for attendees who want to identify obstacles to voting, and how to fix them.

      June 27: Web - Maximizing the Impact of Direct Examination

      When you\'re in front of a judge and jury after months of immersion in your case, there\'s little you don\'t already know about your case and your witness -- to the point that direct examination may feel like just a formality to get out of the way. But to these fact finders, direct is the moment they finally get to meet your witness and your chance to shape those crucial first impressions.
      In this hour long webcast, trial and evidence expert Mike Fontham will help you refine how you conduct direct so that the essentials of your case come across in a powerful, memorable fashion and your witness seems credible and reliable. From Mike's presentation, you will learn how to maximize the impact of your direct by selecting and emphasizing the essentials of your client\'s case, phrasing your questions to elicit the answers you want (while avoiding form objections), using exhibits to enhance your witness\'s testimony, and developing important points so fact finders will understand and remember them during deliberation.
