Advocacy

Advocacy courses and e-learning for beginners and experienced advocates in courts, tribunals, inquests and arbitrations.  Transferable advocacy skills for transactional lawyers aiming to be more persuasive.

Building your advocacy skills

Being a confident and persuasive advocate is something to which many lawyers aspire. For many lawyers, it’s not a skill that comes naturally, but it is a skill that you can learn. All of our advocacy courses use a range of teaching techniques including short presentations with multi-media support, reconstructions and group work. There are exercises on making submissions, witness handling and all the other key skills. And of course there’s feedback from expert tutors who know exactly how to support you as your skills develop. Building confidence is a part of what we do, but we’ll also make sure that you come away with a bespoke set of techniques that you can implement straight away.

Specialist advocacy skills

Advocacy in courtrooms, tribunals, inquests, arbitrations, public meetings – whether you are just starting out or want to fine-tune your existing skills – we have the expertise to support your development. Please get in touch to discuss how we can help.

Transferable skills for everyone

Advocacy is for everyone, not just for the court room advocate. Mostly we think we’re no good at it because it’s some sort of scary art available only to a selected few.  So we spend our professional lives ducking and diving, avoiding all those opportunities to shine that other people seem to take in their stride.

But advocacy is something we’re all doing all the time, without realising it. Making a point, listening, asking questions, planning a meeting, controlling a conversation, delivering a presentation – all these things are advocacy in one form or another. Our courses will help you learn the skills and techniques you need for any form of advocacy.
