2011-2012 Inn of Court Program

 

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri has long partnered with the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association in its efforts to develop the trial skills of young attorneys through the Ross T. Roberts Inn of Court Program. The Ross T. Roberts Inn of Court Program exposes young attorneys to CLE luncheons geared toward the practical skills needed to become a successful litigator, and it offers opportunities for one-on-one instruction and critique from state and federal judges as well as experienced attorneys in the legal community. There are three components to the Ross T. Roberts Inn of Court Program: (1) a CLE luncheon series; (2) preparatory sessions led by Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert E. Larsen, in which young attorneys enrolled in the program are instructed on a specific aspect of trial; and (3) performance sessions, where young attorneys practice the aspect of trial on which they have been instructed. During the performance sessions, the young attorneys receive feedback on their respective performances from judges and experienced litigators. They are also provided the opportunity to assess their own delivery based on a video recording of their performance. Individuals interested in participating in the 2011-2012 Ross T. Roberts Inn of Court Program should contact the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association at (816) 474-4322.
