The Colorado Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates’ Teachers Law School is an intensive, hands-on learning experience with the best trial lawyers and judges, as well as the Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court. This two-day program takes place in the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Center in downtown Denver, and consists of presentations, tours of judges’ chambers, court rooms and courthouses, and a hosted dinner and cocktail reception complete with a mock “jury selection” by some of Colorado’s finest trial attorneys.
Presentation topics include the federal, state and local court systems, the history of the civil jury trial, teacher’s liability, social media in the classroom, and other relevant legal issues unique to teaching civics in middle and high school classrooms. There is no cost to participate, and ABOTA offers substitute teacher stipends to those who qualify. Space is limited. Please contact John R. Rodman at firstname.lastname@example.org more information on this wonderful program.
