The DIFC Academy are hosting a course named ‘Advanced Advocacy Skills‘ which is part of the DIFC Laws Certificate programme. This comprehensive training explores the application of traditional advocacy skills to activities routinely performed by lawyers. There will be series of both unassessed and assessed advocacy exercises. These exercises take the form of mock hearings covering submissions (written and oral), witness handling and general advocacy tips. They serve as useful refreshers for courtroom skills.
There will be three parts to the course, all being given by barristers from Outer Temple Chambers. The first session of the advanced advocacy course will be hosted by James Counsell KC and Oliver Powell. The training will focus on ‘Trial advocacy and witness handling and examination’ and will involve: talking on the topic, practical workshop training, and one or two advocacy exercises/mock trials.
