What if there could be 16 leading advocacy experts from around the country in a private classroom as guest lecturers teaching arbitration and trial advocacy skills? What if they were always available? Now they are with the 21st Century Textbook, Arbitration Advocacy. Utilizing 16 advocacy experts and the latest instructional technology, delivered in a reliable easy to use DVD format, Arbitration Advocacy brings the case of Midstate v. Rogers to life in a powerful self-directed learning environment that is as valuable for advocates as it is for instructors.
Carefully crafted lectures and performances critiqued by an expert panel turn the case into a learning experience as it unfolds. Mini-lectures on relevant topics such as case analysis, opening statements and witness examinations provide in-depth instruction that can augment classroom lectures and provide advocates the opportunity to explore topics more in-depth on their own.
The realism of the case is enhanced by a complete set of exhibits that can be examined in real-time as they are presented. The Federal Rules of Evidence can be seen when there are objections and rulings by the arbitrator during the case.
A complete 295 page Trial Book is included in a digital format, complete with editable forms so that there is everything for advocates to prepare and present a case themselves. Bring the classroom into the 21st century with this powerful effective advocate training program.

He was the first recipient of the "Advocate" award from the Minnesota State Bar Association for outstanding achievement and contribution to the bar. The National College of Trial Lawyers honored Sonsteng with the Emil Gumpert Award for excellence in teaching trial advocacy. Sonsteng created the NITA's first online Effective Advocate Training Program and recently published the Practicum Series Advocacy Exercises, with NITA, based on the materials he designed for William Mitchell Legal Practicum courses. He co-created William Mitchell's hands-on Business Practice and General Practice Legal Practicum courses and has taught advanced advocacy, criminal law and criminal procedure during his thirty years at William Mitchell. He was recently named director of international programs and is working with students, faculty, and alumni on codifying and expanding Mitchell's international opportunities.
