Conducting a Trial in the Magistrates' Court

This interactive course involves preparation for, and participation in, a mock Criminal trial in the Magistrates’ Court.  You will undertake various advocacy roles and will be given guidance and feedback throughout from the trainer.

It will prepare you to conduct your trials with confidence and professionalism.

Audience

This course is suitable for both new and aspiring entrants to the profession, looking to conduct Court work.  It stands alone, but also builds on the learning acquired from the preliminary course, Finding Your Feet in the Magistrates’ Court.

It is also suitable for trainee solicitors, who have completed the Advocacy & Communication Skills module of the Professional Skills Course, with intentions of practising in the field of Criminal law, including advocacy in the Magistrates’ Court.

Key Benefits

You will participate in a realistic, and fully contested summary trial and will, subsequently, be able to influence the verdicts by your advocacy skills.  The key benefits will, therefore, be a better understanding of how to:

  • Properly conduct a Magistrates' Court trial;
  • Effect active co-operation between the Prosecution and the Defence;
  • Handle witnesses, using effective questioning techniques;
  • Challenge evidence in a coherent and organised manner; and
  • Improve your overall confidence and ability.
