About the IADC Trial Academy
The IADC Trial Academy was initiated by the International Association of Defense Counsel in 1973 at the University of Colorado in Boulder. After 31 years at that location, the Trial Academy moved to the prestigious Stanford Law School in Stanford, California in 2004.
The purpose of this continuing legal education program is to enhance advocacy trial skills of less experienced lawyers. The Academy provides intensive, comprehensive and participatory education to young defense trial lawyers. Its faculty members are experienced, well-recognized trial lawyers with extensive trial experience. They are drawn from different geographic areas and diverse practices, styles and personalities. Faculties and directors rotate on an annual basis. Ellis & Winters attorney Andrew Chamberlin served as faculty for the 2014 IADC Trial Academy.
