TLC Flagship 3-Week Colleges


This comprehensive 3-week program dissects courtroom procedures with painstaking detail to provide hands-on tools toward achieving justice. Trial skills are only part of being a force in the courtroom. The trial lawyers’ power originates from within. Knowledge of oneself gives the lawyer the capability to know others and to connect with each person in the courtroom including the witnesses, the judge, and the jurors. The power of TLC’s methods come alive through creative, spontaneous, outside-the-box innovations that capture juries and move them to justice.
