CORT/ABA Domestic Violence Training


CORT has partnered with the ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence in presenting its virtual Trial Skills Institute via zoom on June 13, 14, 15, and 16, 2023.

The Trial Skills Institute taking place online teaches and enhances the litigation skills of attorneys who represent survivors of domestic violence in contested hearings and trials. Working from a hypothetical fact pattern, participants perform closing arguments, direct and cross examinations, evidentiary foundations, and impeachment exercises in a series of online modules, and receive immediate feedback and constructive critique from expert faculty. Participants have the opportunity to improve other skills, including case strategizing, verbal and nonverbal communication techniques, thinking quickly on their feet, and overcoming objections and other special challenges that may arise in the courtroom. As a result of participating in this virtual Institute, attorneys will gain confidence and improve their abilities to effectively represent their clients in order of protection and other family law cases.
