    This is the most advanced DWI practice course offered to attorneys. It consists of a given factual scenario and each attorney is required to prepare the case for trial. Upon arrival, lectures are given on each area of trial preparation and presentation by the nations leading DWI defense attorneys. The class is then broken into smaller groups in which each student demonstrates his ability and understanding of the lecture topic. After each demonstration, the student is critiqued by a three member panel again composed of the best DWI defense attorneys in the United States. In addition to the legal training, extensive training is given in the areas of science involved with professional DWI defense. Attendees work closely in groups with scientists who explain the most advanced developments in chemical breath testing using the same scientific instruments employed in their home jurisdictions.
