Advocacy and case preparation

This highly practical one-day course is designed for beginners and those who have done a reasonable amount of advocacy but would like to improve their skills. The topics include:
  • Court room basics and etiquette
  • Controlling your nerves
  • Written advocacy - case summaries and skeleton arguments.
  • Preparing and making applications
  • How to structure submissions and which approach is likely to be successful
  • Conduct of trials
  • Cross-examination.
Each individual is given a set of papers to prepare in the morning and by lunch time, with the guidance of the trainers, will have prepared a chronology, case summary and skeleton arguement. The afternoon is devoted to oral presentations of the case by all the delegates, with valuable feedback provided by the trainers.

Course level: Beginner and intermediate

Trainers: Gary Webber and Daniel Dovar, barrister at Tanfield Chambers

6 hours CPD
