Blank Rome LLP held its annual Trial Academy VII at Philadelphia City Hall on June 10, 2017.
Chaired by Blank Rome Partners Jerry Bernstein, Jeff Moller, and Larry Wechsler, Trial Academy continues to be an important initiative designed to provide litigators with an opportunity to gain trial experience and develop critical skills.
The program consists of numerous CLE-accredited training courses, two days of intensive practice and feedback from seasoned Blank Rome trial attorneys serving as coaches, and concludes with eight teams from across the Firm’s offices competing in the jury trials at City Hall.
Judges presiding over the trials included active and former federal and state judges, including three current Blank Rome partners and counsel. In addition, more than 50 other attorneys and professional staff participated in the training program by serving as witnesses and jurors.
