The course will look at some core aspects of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), how to analyse your case and formulate a case theory and how to map-out and recognise the implications of the likely stages of the litigation.
This course is popular with both trainee solicitors before or during their litigation seat and with qualified litigators.
Whilst the case study used in this course is a commercial contract dispute, the core content of the course is transferrable to other areas of law.
- Effectively analyse cases, enabling you to discern and focus on the issues;
- Develop appropriate case theories and so gain better insight into the case;
- Understand and plan for the litigation in an effective, focussed way so that it is more likely to run smoothly with fewer unexpected problems.
TBC: Please contact us for future course dates
The topics will include:
- How to Conduct a Factual and Legal Analysis of the Dispute;
- How to Identify the Issues in the Case and the Parties’ Contentions;
- Proving Your Case;
- An Understanding of Case Management and Other Core Parts of the Civil Litigation Process;
- Planning and Resourcing the Dispute.
No practical experience of litigation is needed but a basic understanding of the CPR will assist. If you do not have such knowledge you may wish to familiarise yourself with the core process.
There is no specific/mandatory pre-course work for this course. However, a basic understanding of the CPR may assist. If you do not have such knowledge you may wish to familiarise yourself with the core process.
The case study will be used throughout the course, so it is important that you have read through it before attending.
