The prestigious Penn State Dickinson School of Law (Dickinson Law), in conjunction with the ICCBA, organised an intensive five-day course in trial advocacy at the ICC in The Hague between 30 April and 4 May 2018.
The course was specially oriented to international trial advocacy and provided a solid base for those who participated in developing their skills in trial strategy, advocacy, presentation and cross-examination. The course was centered around a detailed mock ICC case, drawing factual and legal elements from real ICC cases and much of the training was in workshop form in one of the ICC courtrooms.
The course was be led by Professor Gildin, Dean of the law school and author of ’Trial Advocacy Basics’. Dean Gildin has over 30 years of experience training members of the Pennsylvania Defence Bar. He was joined by Professor Dermot Groome, also of Dickinson Law and a former senior trial attorney at the ICTY for many years and Adam Weber, former ICTY Prosecutor.
There were 20 participants and a number of guest judges and witnesses, including many ICCBA members.
