About the event

Save the Date – Practical Advocacy Weekend: Saturday 8th August 2020 8:30am to Sunday 9 August 2020 1.00pm.

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

This 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 Coach. 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 recognise the benefits of this as a large number of preeminent civil barristers honed their advocacy skills while practising in crime.
