    The ABA Forum on Construction Law is pleased to announce the Forum Trial Academy will be held February 7–10, 2018, at the George Allen Dallas County Civil Courts Building in Dallas, TX. This three-day
    intensive trial skills training program will use two different dispute scenarios to teach the skills that are needed
    to successfully try a construction dispute. Experienced construction litigators who have tried construction cases in jurisdictions throughout the country will be on of the faculty. Construction experts will demonstrate how to conduct effective direct and cross examinations of technical witnesses.

    Designed for young or less experienced construction litigators, this program is limited to thirty-six participants. Each participant will be afforded multiple, daily opportunities for “on their feet” trial experience in a construction case, while receiving immediate feedback from course instructors and via video review. The construction experts will also have an opportunity to receive feedback from the course instructors.

    The academy will culminate with participants conducting a mock trial of a construction case.
