CAMBRIDGE, MA. (January 9, 2017)—Prominent civil rights attorney, Trent A. McCain, returns to Harvard Law School today as a visiting faculty member of its Winter Trial Advocacy Workshop. The workshop is an intensive three-week trial advocacy program culminating in a full, simulated trial with high school or law students serving as jurors. Workshop students are instructed and critiqued by a faculty of experienced lawyers and judges like McCain.
“It is a profound honor to help shape future advocates from such a prestigious university,” said McCain. “This is my fourth year teaching at HLS and I look forward to it each and every year,” added McCain.
McCain celebrates 15 years in the practice of law this year. He currently sits on the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission and is involved in several high-profile wrongful death and civil rights cases. McCain’s office is located in Merrillville and he also practices in Chicago. Before starting his own practice, McCain worked for the late, famed attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. in his Chicago office. McCain concentrates his practice in civil rights, catastrophic personal injury, and wrongful death cases.
