Designed as an entry-level training experience for newer attorneys and paralegals, Administrative Hearing Skills introduces participants to the full panoply of skills needed to prepare for and conduct an administrative hearing - from the initial client interview to case planning, witness preparation, proof of facts, direct and cross examination, and more.
