What is the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program?

  1. 1. What is the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program?
  2. 2. • The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, the law school of Yeshiva University in New York City, is well-known in both legal and academic circles for its strong focus on practical training in the law. Of Cardozo Law’s many programs to focus on applied, hands-on, immersive education, the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program (ITAP) is one of the most popular.
  3. 3. • Held each January, ITAP is a rigorous twoweek course that focuses on strategies and techniques for courtroom litigation. Adopting a “master class” learning approach, ITAP fully immerses its students in the art of trial practice. Participants interview and prepare witnesses, practice cross and direct examinations, select juries, deal with issues relating to evidence, and prepare and present jury and bench trials. The course culminates in a full jury trial conducted by the students.
  4. 4. • One of the most significant benefits of ITAP is the opportunity it offers students to receive feedback from real-life lawyers and judges. These professional experts critique the students’ work throughout every step of the program and offer personalized, individual reviews of recorded student performances. Some of the country’s most highly regarded jurists and lawyers have participated in ITAP since the program’s inception.
