Ollie Harton is a faculty member for the 2020 Kessler-Eidson Program for Trial Techniques at Emory University School of Law.

The program is an experiential approach to developing oral advocacy skills. Modeled after the National Institute for Trial Advocacy's program for teaching practicing lawyers, Emory Law's program is recognized as one of the nation's finest. The American College of Trial Lawyers has twice conferred on Emory's program the Emil Gumpert Award for excellence in the teaching of trial advocacy. The program's teaching methodology focuses on integrating the second-year law student's knowledge of substantive evidence with practical trial skills through a "learn-by-doing" format.
