This CPD will explore (by reference to selected case materials) some skills, techniques and professional responsibilities, that assist practitioners to avoid common obstacles in the preparation and presentation of the testimony of plaintiffs in our adversarial litigious system. A model that purports to respond to context, identity and ‘story-telling’ capacity will be examined.
