This course provides valuable experience in appearing before the court for junior practitioners, individuals new to litigation and anyone seeking a refresher in advocacy.

The intensive course offers practical exercises in small groups with guidance and constructive feedback from volunteer teachers who are experienced advocates, including barristers and members of the judiciary.

In preparation for the weekend, you will receive a briefing session on case theory and case analysis from our Head Coaches. Voice and performance coaching will also be provided before the weekend and will continue throughout the weekend.

Practical application comprises of one civil interlocutory injunction where participants argue for either the applicant or the respondent. The problem question used for practising examinations and cross examinations of witnesses and closing statements is a criminal problem. Budding civil advocates will recognize the benefits of this as many preeminent civil barristers honed their advocacy skills while practising in crime.
