The course will cover ‘case theory’ the foundation of good trial advocacy, etiquette and the examination of witnesses.  Plenary sessions will be combined with small group sessions in which delegates have the  opportunity to practise advocacy skills in a supportive atmosphere with individual constructive feedback given by experienced advocacy trainers. The sessions will concentrate of witness handling skills rather than the law and will be based on a new case which will be sent to delegates in advance.

The Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocacy (QASA) will be explained and delegates will be better prepared for assessment under the scheme now being rolled out. Suitable for HCAs intending to register as Level 2 trial advocates as well as those conducting trials in the magistrates courts. Feedback has shown that whatever level of experience delegates have there is always something to learn and take from attending, and indeed repeating, this course.

The price includes all documentation, refreshments and cold buffet lunch. 6 CPD points.
