Civil Litigation: Practice and Skills

Legal professionals are increasingly realising the need to develop their litigation skills to provide an effective service to clients.  Designed for busy practitioners, this course updates on key advances in civil procedure, and considers the application of recent case law and legislative reforms to day-to-day practical issues.

The period since the Jackson reforms has been turbulent for civil litigators and this course seeks to enable you to run a lean, efficient practice, through a firm understanding of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and how the rules can be used to your practical advantage.  Rather than a bland recital of the rules and the changes therein, this course looks at how you can develop strategies for winning cases, by using a tactical approach to the CPR.

Unlike many litigation courses, this course does not concentrate on only one side of the dispute and, as such, is equally useful to both Claimant and Defendant specialists.  You will develop a more rounded approach to litigation, by considering both sides of the case.

Throughout the course, the trainer will highlight real-life examples of good and bad practice, to illustrate practical applications of the CPR, inviting you to draw upon and share your own experiences.
