Court Advocacy Training
This is a very brief seminar regarding becoming a court advocate. Sometimes when a crime perpetrator is in court in front of a judge local citizens [court advocates] are asked to appear in the court room to make to impress the judge etc on the concerns of the citizens. A side benefit is if you are ever called for jury duty, past court advocates are usually dismissed.
