Written advocacy forms an integral part of court work, often replacing or supplementing oral advocacy for hearings and after trial submissions. It is therefore of paramount importance that your written work submitted to court is effective and persuasive.
Those who have successfully completed either the Civil Advocacy Training Course or the Criminal Trial Advocacy Course, conducted by the Bar Council Advocacy Training Committee, are encouraged to participate in this course. For those who have not completed the basic advocacy courses conducted by the Committee, you may join this
course and guidance will be provided.
This online course will be conducted intensively and requires participants to submit their written work to the trainers one week before the course, based on case studies which will be provided to the participants in advance. The course will commence with presentations on effective written advocacy from the perspective of a Judge and also of an Advocate.
It will then be followed by personal, individualised and comprehensive reviews of the written work of the participants by experienced advocates and judges. Participants will then be given the opportunity to rework their written submissions and deliver them to the trainers for a further review on the subsequent day.
The training utilised in this course follows closely. the training method adopted for the advocacy training courses organised by the Committee and will cover aspects which the trainers feel would assist to improve the written advocacy of the individual advocate.
