Advanced Trial Advocacy Course 2022

TDCAA’s Advanced Trial Advocacy Course is designed for prosecutors with at least three to five years of trial experience who want to prepare and participate in a hands-on course to increase their effectiveness in trial. Upon acceptance, all participants will receive a detailed packet of instructions and a case scenario that will form the basis of presentations, faculty demonstrations, workshops, and courtroom performances. 

If you are interested in attending, applications are available on the last page of the brochure, which is posted below. Due to the rigorous nature of the course and limited number of available seats, all applications must include a nomination from your boss, the Elected Prosecutor. Ultimately, course acceptance is based on individual experience, geography, office size, and need.

Standard Reimbursement Policy: TDCAA will reimburse only eligible ­prosecutors and prosecutor office employees up to the GSA rate per night for five nights’ stay at a hotel. Due to the increase in hotel reimbursement, TDCAA will no longer reimburse for meals.  Additionally, TDCAA will not reimburse for travel, registration fees, hotel tax, parking, taxi costs, or other extraordinary expenses. All other expenses are your own.
