    The South Carolina Defense Trial Attorneys' Association will hold its annual Trial Academy on May 23-25, 2018 in Columbia, SC.  The first two days will be held at the law offices of Richardson Plowden.  The mock trials will be held on May 25th and will take place at the Richland County Magistrate Courthouse on Decker Boulevard.

    This three-day trial advocacy course is designed for practitioners with up to five years of experience in jury trials.  The course will focus on the successful handling of all major aspects of a trial from opening statement to closing argument, as well as trial preparation and post-trial matters.  There will be demonstrations and lectures by experienced defense trial attorneys. Eighteen hours of CLE credit is anticipated.

    The registration fee is $1,000.00, exclusive of room and board.  SCDTAA has reserved a block of rooms at the Columbia Marriott Downtown at a rate of $179.00/night + tax.  Room charges will be paid directly by the participants to the hotel upon checkout.  If you need a room at the Marriott, please click on the link below.  Reservations should be made by May 1, 2018 to ensure this rate.
