Trial Strategy Planning

It is a well-established principle that good case preparation is the key to good advocacy.  Indeed, the most common feedback we receive from our delegates is an appreciation of the training we provide on the key elements of trial preparation and, in particular, how using a Trial Strategy Plan (TSP) changes the manner in which they prepare any case, enabling an advocate to have confidence that all of the aspects of trial preparation have been covered. 

This interactive and innovative course will enable you to develop the skills and confidence necessary to allow you to effectively plan for and run a Criminal Trial at Court.  It will help you to conduct an in-depth analysis of the evidence; develop an organised strategic approach and identify all of the steps to be taken to be fully and effectively prepared for a trial.  We hope that this course will change your whole approach to trial preparation.


This course is suitable for new entrants to the legal profession looking to develop the confidence to conduct trials, those at an intermediate level who are already conducting or intending to conduct trials at all levels and more experienced advocates who want to enhance their method of preparation for trial with some innovative thinking.  It is also popular with non-advocates who are involved in preparing cases for Crown Court trial.
