Affidavits and witness statements are the evidence in chief of a witness, and a valuable means by which to present evidence to court. Their form and content are governed by rules of evidence and rules of court. The skill of drafting admissible and relevant affidavits and witness statements is of fundamental importance to litigators. It facilitates effective litigation and supports the efficient administration of justice.

In this blended workshop led by experienced practitioners, we will revisit the Rules of the Supreme Court 1971 and key evidentiary principles, examining how and why a Court might favourably exercise its discretion in common interlocutory applications.

This workshop will provide practical tips, insights and examples to aid delegates in effective drafting techniques.
