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.

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.

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