What does Courtroom Skills training cover?

The day starts with removing the mystique which can surround courtroom processes. You’ll learn about the various roles of everyone involved as well as how to take the oath and deal with cross-examinations. Other areas covered include:

  •  Understanding the adversarial process
  • The practice and procedure of giving evidence
  • Preparing to give evidence
  • ‘Hot-tubbing’ of expert evidence
  • The role and purpose of evidence-in-chief, cross-examination and re-examination
  • Coping strategies
  • The ‘Ten Golden Rules’

As defence lawyers often focus on decisions made by investigators and managers, the course also includes guidance on making decisions and recording the thinking behind them. You’ll end the course by undergoing or observing a simulated cross-examination exercise so you’ll know what to expect in the courtroom
