Judge Michele Morel mentors future lawyers
St. Charles Parish District Court Judge Michele Morel
Morel is one of 60 participating attorneys who teach law students the art and science of advocacy and persuasion in the courtroom. Those legal scholars who are selected to teach this program are among the most experienced and respected trial lawyers and judges from across the U.S.
Through the program, Morel helps the students understand the complexities of trial law through hands-on training. The three-day intensive skills training class at Louisiana State University's School of Law is sponsored by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) and has been operating wince 1992. Everything from trial practice to jury selection to presenting a compelling closing argument is taught at the training class. The National Institute for Trial Advocacy is the nation’s leading provider of legal advocacy skills training. NITA pioneered the legal skills learning-by-doing methodology over 40 years ago and has since remained the ultimate standard in continuing legal education.
The LSU Trial Advocacy Training Program is founded and directed by New Orleans attorney Dominic Gianna.
“Judge Morel’s ability to motivate young lawyers is inspiring,” Gianna said. “Her radiant smile and compelling skills keep the law students focused on being the best in their field.”
Morel said that the program is an outstanding training process for the future lawyers.
