This course has been specifically designed to help criminal advocates to develop their trials skills in a magistrates’ court. Working from a readily digested selection of trial materials, the session recreates some of the trial process in a non-threatening environment. Delegates will be able to improve their skills without fear.
With strictly limited numbers, your own audiovisual recordings and personalised feedback, the day will include:
Case analysis - points to prove and how they are proved
Trial issues - understanding both sides of the case
Examination in chief - painting a detailed verbal picture
Cross-examination - effective use of questioning techniques
Opening and closing - how your case follows the evidence
Reluctant witnesses - remaining polite and persuasive
