The Advancement Project's mission is rooted in the great human rights struggles for equality and justice. They use innovative tools and strategies to strengthen social movements and achieve high impact policy change. NITA had the opportunity to work with seven attorneys at the Advancement Project on a deposition skills program, January 28 - 30 in Washington, DC.
NITA Program Director, Henry Su, led the program and was met with very positive feedback from the attendees. One attendee stated, "This was incredibly useful and I'd highly recommend Henry Su, our NITA trainer!"
Another attendee stated, "It was excellent. Henry was a thoughtful and attentive instructor, and I gained a lot from the course."
The three-day program was an investigative skills program where the participants learned how to prepare for interviews and depositions, hone their questioning techniques, use the Funnel method and work with exhibits.
After the program concluded, Henry stated, "I very much enjoyed working with Gilda Daniels, the Advancement Project's Director of Litigation, to design a program that would suit the needs of her lawyers and bear relevance to their case work. Some unexpected wintry weather required us to adjust the program schedule on the fly, but with coffee flowing and snacks aplenty, our participants kept up their good humor and enthusiasm over the three days, and we covered everything we had set out to accomplish. It was great fun, and I hope we can work together again soon."
