Highly practical and
relevant training. 5 hours.
This course is popular with both new entrants to the profession looking to develop confidence to conduct trials and with more experienced advocates who want to enhance their method of preparation for trial with some innovative thinking.
This is a one-day open and relaxed workshop style session. It is a highly-practical, skills based course that includes an interactive blend of tutor-led presentatoin and practical work examples, exercises and case studies to ensure delegates understand and retain knowledge. Pre Course Distance Learning Work is offered in advance to allow the training day to focus on skills-development.
Delegates create a case plan outlining their strategy; assessing strengths and weaknesses of their case and their opponent’s; setting up cross-examination of each witness; identifying evidential issues, applications and submissions that they might make and anticipating those their opponents may make; considering all lines of enquiry and further preparation needed to be fully prepared for trial.
Delegates are sent a case study in advance. They are expected to acquaint themselves with the facts in readiness for the course. They will work within one of two groups either for the Prosecution or the Defence. The groups work separately, with guidance from the tutor to prepare their case plan. A template format is provided to structure the plan. Strategies and preparations are discussed within the specific groups before they are brought together and the respective case plans analysed and discussed with feedback from the tutor.
By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
