TRAIN THE TRAINERS WORKSHOP
The Train the Trainers Workshop is intended to enhance training skills and expand the pool of experienced legal professionals available to serve as faculty at Training Division events, as well as local programs for CJA panel attorneys and federal defender staff. Participants will discuss and apply small group facilitation skills, as well as principles of adult learning, effective training design, and persuasive presentation techniques and methodologies, many of which are applicable to advocacy and other litigation essentials. The workshop is open to CJA Attorneys, federal defender staff (Assistant Federal Defenders, Computer Systems Administrators, Paralegals, and Investigators) and others who provide services under the CJA. Each participant must bring a laptop to the workshop. Registration is limited to a total of 40 people. Registration preference will be given to applicants who have not previously attended this event. Limited financial assistance will be available to non-federal defender registrants for travel expenses.
