What is the difference between witness preparation and witness coaching? Legal Profession Conduct Rule 39 concerns how practitioners discuss a prospective witnesses’ evidence, but in some ways, raises more questions than it answers.
This course will focus on the line between preparing and coaching a witness and addresses the interesting question of what lawyers can and can’t do to prepare witnesses for giving evidence.
Presented by Barrister Craig Slater, this is a great ethics course which sheds light on the specific ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of the potential minefield of dealing with witnesses.
