COVID-19 Statement: The safety of our members, colleagues, and staff is our highest priority. The American Inns of Court is closely monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 and the recommendations of the CDC and WHO. While we are currently going forward with the NATP as planned, we will keep attendees apprised of any changes to that status. In the event of cancellation, all NATP attendees will receive a full reimbursement of the registration fee.
The American Inns of Court's National Advocacy Training Program (NATP) is an intensive two-day training program conducted in a courtroom style setting with two small groups of eight – ten participants. Two facilitators – British judges or barristers from the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) in London – lead each group using the six-step Hampel method of advocacy training. In order to level the experience playing field, the training is based on a case set before the International Criminal Court (ICC) developed specifically for the NATP.
Who should attend? Designed for attorneys looking to develop or hone their courtroom presentation skills, the majority of participants find themselves within two to ten years of practice. However, attorneys who have been practicing longer but without the opportunity to argue in court may also find value in the program. All participants should feel comfortable working in a group and receiving public critiques of their performances.
This is an unparalleled training opportunity, but don't take our word for it - read what NATP alumni thought about their experience and what they got out of the program.
The NATP is open to active Inn members, Inn alumni and non-member attorneys.
- Active Inn of Court Members: $925
- Inn of Court Alumni: $1025
- Non-Member Attorneys: $1125
