              Instructions for Applying to 10th Annual Bill Daniel Trial Program


Dear GACDL Member,

 This letter gives instructions for applying to GACDL’s 10th Annual Bill Daniel Trial Advocacy Program.
Please take time to read this letter before filling out your application. The deadline to apply is August 1, 2009.

 This program is designed for GACDL members with limited trial experience. Your 2009 GACDL dues must be
current in order to be accepted into this program. Thirty participants will be accepted as determined by
complete answers to questions on the application. The program, coordinated by Jill Travis, will feature an
outstanding and truly dedicated faculty of criminal defense practitioners who donate their time to the program.

 As soon as you have applied please take leaves of absence immediately in the event that you are accepted. At
present, the program is scheduled to start promptly at 11:00 AM on Wednesday October 7t h and end at 2:30 PM
on Saturday October 10th, 2009. Attendance for the entire program is mandatory. Applicants will receive
notification of whether or not they have been accepted to the program by September 1, 2009.

 The fee for the program includes some 26 hours of instruction, materials, three nights at the center (not
optional), four lunches, three continental breakfasts, a cocktail party, and a pizza party. Because GACDL
scholarships the majority of these costs, the fee for the program is only $250. Please enclose a check for $200
with your application. This check will be returned to you in the event that your application is not accepted.

 In addition to your application and program fee check, please include a check to hold your space in the
program. This check should be payable to GACDL for $600 and dated August 1, 2009. This check will be
returned to you: a) if you are not accepted to the program; b) if you must withdraw from the program before
August 1; or c) at the conclusion of the program if you have attended and participated throughout.

 Most of the program costs for each participant are being paid by GACDL. We are glad to invest in the future
trial skills of our members; however, if you drop out of the program after August 1, do not show up for the
program, or leave before the conclusion, GACDL will deposit this $600 check to make up for the loss of
revenue invested in your education.

 At the end of the program you will pay GACDL for any CLE hours you want. The cost is $5 per each hour that
you would like for us to report to the State Bar. There will be 26.5 trial hours available to you upon completion
of this program.

Thank you for your interest. Please call me if you have any questions: 404-248-1777.



Jennifer K. Carter, Executive Director, GACDL
