NITA is the original, and nobody does Learning-By-Doing like we do. We’ll give you a learning experience unlike any other, in a safe and supportive environment; encouraging you to try new approaches and push yourself to hone new skills to fundamentally change the way you advocate for your clients.
Use what you learn immediately in the office, in your next courtroom trial, and time and again over the course of your career.
It’s Advocacy Enhanced. And Mentorship Reimagined. Welcome to the Community.
We offer career-enhancing courses more frequently than any other organization, giving you ample opportunity to attend the NITA program that best fits your schedule. NITA advances your career and the profession with access to texts and virtual programs. We give you access to the world’s leading experts and best practices for legal advocacy training, both offline and online.
Our faculty are dedicated to you becoming the best advocate you can be; with decades of experience—some in the courtroom, some focused on pedagogy—they are experts at honing in on the methods to improve your skills. They will encourage you to try new approaches and experiment in the safety of a workshop environment.
Our community not only provides you access to the most highly acclaimed and esteemed legal advocates in the world, it provides opportunities to join us in impacting others. NITA graduates often return to volunteer for future programs to pass along what they have learned—and continue to learn by teaching.
