Advocacy training at the DIFC Academy of Law, with James Counsell QC and Oliver Powell

James Counsell QC and Oliver Powell recently delivered the Trial Advocacy and Witness Handling & Examination portion for Advanced Advocacy Skills on the Certificate in Common Law and DIFC Courts Practice programme.

The DIFC Academy of Law have launched this course for Emirati Advocates and other civil law trained lawyers, in-house counsel, and legal professionals seeking to diversify their skills and enhance their professional development.

In addition, John McKendrick QC and Ben Bradley will be teaching Oral Submissions and Appeal Advocacy and Keith Bryant QC and Jonathan Hand QC will be teaching Appeal Advocacy from February to April 2020.

James Counsell QC commented: “The team from Outer Temple Chambers is delighted once again to be involved in the opportunity to teach Common Law Advanced Advocacy Skills to such a diverse and interested group of students, for whom English is not their first language.  Last year, we were struck by the extent to which the students were all prepared enthusiastically to engage in what were highly enjoyable, but practical, sessions and we very much look forward to being able to contribute to the continued success of the Certificate in Common Law and DIFC Courts practice this year.”

More information on the course can be read here. You can book the course here.

We are proud to be involved in this project as part of our ongoing commitment to the Academy of Law and our work in Dubai. Outer Temple members are regularly instructed in DIFC Court matters, with David Russell QC based permanently at Outer Temple’s office in the DIFC.
