eLearning: The Line Between Proofing and Coaching a Witness

The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 4, 160 St Georges Terrace Perth

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.
