2023 PLAN Trial Skills Training for New Attorneys 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This registration is specifically for the Trial Skills Training taking place on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.

If you plan to attend the Statewide Conference on September 14-15, 2023, you must complete a separate registration using this link: Statewide Registration


The Trial Skills Training is a one-day interactive training hosted by PLAN and presented by experienced volunteer faculty. The training is designed for newer PLAN attorneys and features a combination of lectures and small group workshops. The primary goal of this training is to assist public interest attorneys in honing their trial advocacy skills. 

The training will revolve around a hypothetical family law case, and participants will receive homework assignments in advance. Participants will be expected to direct and cross examine witnesses, prepare for opening and closing statements and enter exhibits. 


Space for this training is limited to 24 participants and priority will be given to less experienced PLAN Attorneys 

Registration is free and limited to staff of the following PA Legal Aid Network (PLAN) programs: CJP, CLS, JAW, LASP, MPLS, NLSA, NPLS, NWLS, PHLP, PILP, PLA, PULP, RHLS and SLA. Registration includes breakfast and lunch on the day of the training. 

If you are unable to register using the link below, it means the training is full.
