Programs

Take a class with NITA and you'll see just how valuable our dynamic teaching methods can be. You'll work with NITA's expert faculty, earning CLE credit through one day or multi-day sessions that are geared towards all skill levels and areas of advocacy. Our unique learning-by-doing method will put you in the courtroom, practicing everything from jury selection to witness examination.

OVERVIEW

NITA is devoted to providing all lawyers with access to legal skills training. Public service programs created by NITA teach relevant advocacy skills to dedicated groups of attorneys and advocates working in areas, including, but not limited to:

  • Child advocacy
  • Death penalty defense
  • Disability
  • Domestic violence
  • Elder law
  • Immigration
  • Legal Services
  • Tribal justice

To help reach our goal, we devote resources to programs designed to improve the skills of those who represent underserved communities. This commitment is shown through our Board of Trustees allocating a percentage of reserves to be spent each year for our public service mission along with donations and grants. While many public service organizations approach NITA about coordinating training for their attorneys, our public service funding and volunteer faculty resources are limited. We try our best to accommodate organizations that apply and match our public service criteria by also extending reduced fee programming.
