The May 2007 Class of prosecutors who attended the Cross-Examination Training Program.   DA Murphy and 48 prosecutors from across the U.S. recently completed this intensive four day criminal trial advocacy class concentrating on cross examination at The National Advocacy Center (NAC) in Columbia,  South Carolina.  Hearing trial experiences from other prosecutors and participating in mock trials are two ways prosecutors can learn from each other to develop courtroom skills and techniques at the NAC.   Paid for by the Department of Justice in Washington D.C., the Center helps prosecutors hone their criminal trial practice skills.  Many of the assistant district attorneys in Saratoga County have been invited to and have attended training sessions on a variety of topics at the NAC.
