Learning the techniques of Advocacy is an evolving process and lifelong experience. Solicitor advocates and barristers muster legal knowledge, forensic skills, professional ethics and courtroom etiquette to enable them to present their cases seamlessly and persuasively in the courtroom. Legal practitioners must continue developing advocacy skills throughout their professional lives.

In the 2019 Advocacy Weekend Workshop, junior and mid-career practitioners will have an opportunity to learn and practice advocacy techniques from an experienced group of instructors, led by the Hon Justice Graham Hiley, ICAC Commissioner Ken Fleming QC and Professor Les McCrimmon. Experienced practitioners are welcome to register where they want to finetune their advocacy skills.

This will be a practical workshop in which all participants are expected to actively contribute and perform. Using the case provided, participants will be given various tasks to perform, including an opening address, examination-in-chief, cross-examination and a closing address.

Feedback will be provided on individual performances by the Instructors in a supportive environment. Practitioners will benefit from observing the performances and hearing the reviews of other participants.

This workshop is limited to 40 participants. Please put the dates into your diary if you are planning to attend and register as soon as possible to secure your place. Once all 40 places have been taken, you can asked to be placed on the ‘waitlist’.
