The Trial Lawyers College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals; the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression.
In all of its activities, the Trial Lawyers College will foster and nourish an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender, or sexual orientation.
The Trial Lawyers College is committed to training a new breed of lawyer -- a warrior who has the courage to become a real person first, and who then has the heart to fight for justice in their own passionate voice.
Chartered in 1994, TLC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit led by a Board of Directors committed to providing the superior curriculum, faculty and staff that are the foundation of the Trial Lawyers College. The curriculum we have developed over the last 25 years is based on psychodrama – putting words and stories into action – and every TLC course and seminar will teach you these skills to help you choose your cases, understand your clients and the underlying stories in their cases, and seek justice in the courtroom.
TLC’s faculty consists of top trial lawyers from across the nation. They volunteer their time and cover their own travel expenses to teach at TLC courses and share what they have learned and honed at the Trial Lawyers College. The faculty is rounded out by our team of psychodramatists, who are trained to blend the psychodramatic methods with trial skills.
TLC’s administrative staff and instructors are all equally committed to doing their parts to ensure that our students are provided a quality educational, as well as life, experience.
TLC holds courses between May and September each year. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, TLC has scheduled 11 courses in 2020 and 2021 to be held in locations across the US. Visit our Courses page for more information on specific course dates and curriculum. (Please note: Future cancellations may be possible in order to comply with CDC guidelines regarding the health and safety of participants.)
The Warrior Magazine is TLC’s official quarterly publication. It is a valuable resource and archive for trial lawyers who constantly draw on TLC methods for their case preparation and trial skills in the courtroom.
