Yes No   I understand that I am expected to review and¬†analyze the HFTA mock trial fact pattern prior to attending the program and am willing to commit the time necessary to do so. I will attend all scheduled panels and events throughout the 3 day program. I have reviewed these expectations with my employer/immediate supervisor and he/she fully supports my application and will give me the time necessary to participate in the program.
