The Committee on Regional Training (CORT) is sponsoring a Basic Lawyering Skills Training (BLST) for new legal services attorneys. The training will be held Wednesday, November 20th – Friday, November 22nd at the Weber's Inn, 3050 Jackson Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

BLST is the first in CORT’s coordinated scheduled of skills training for legal services attorneys. This conference is aimed at those with less than 18 months experience, and its focus is the practical day-to-day skills of lawyering in the context of legal services work.

A case problem will be used to teach basic elements of interviewing, case planning, motion practice, discovery, negotiations, trial preparation, and basic trial skills.

We have applied for Ohio, West Virginia, and Indiana CLE credits for this training. CORT is a recognized training sponsor in Michigan.
