Trial Academy enrollment is limited to lawyers licensed to practice in Alabama whose practice is devoted primarily to the defense of civil litigation. ADLA reserves the right to determine, in its own judgment, whether an applicant fails to meet this criterion.


Approved by the MCLE Commission of Alabama for a maximum of 15 hours credit, 

including 1 hour of ethics.

Trial Academy is recommended for attorneys who seek to develop and/or polish basic trial skills. Trial Academy will focus on voir dire, opening statements, direct and cross examination, impeachment tactics, introduction of exhibits, objections, closing arguments, and ethics.

Develop Expert Trial Skills

The annual ADLA Bibb Allen Memorial Trial Academy is an outstanding event for learning and developing trial skills. It allows young attorneys the opportunity to "learn by doing" trial exercises in front of an excellent faculty consisting of experienced defense lawyers and trial judges.

All Course Materials Included

The students are provided a set of materials and are asked to develop an opening statement, closing argument, direct examinations, and cross-examinations.

Get Coached by Trial-Seasoned Faculty

During the two days of the Academy, there are lectures on almost every aspect of a trial.  Most importantly, at various times throughout the Academy, the students are divided into small groups consisting of faculty and students, where they perform the exercises and are critiqued by the faculty members.

Valuable Courtroom Training Experience

With real life courtroom opportunities becoming fewer and farther between, the Trial Academy offers young lawyers the chance to gain much needed experience.

Trial Academy is held in August of each year.
