The course emphasises the importance of analysing your opponent’s case, testing the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence on both sides and looks at tactical choices as the case progresses.   It also looks at professional ethics, including duties to the court.

The course can be tailored for Defendant or Claimant firms.
