National Institute for Trial Advocacy

 

Why NITA

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.
