Our Courtroom skills training day is a highly practical and experiential legal training course designed for any professional who may be called upon to give evidence in any legal forum; civil or criminal. It is then followed by a day of Cross-examination skills training.
Our Courtroom Skills training day is a highly practical and experiential legal training course designed for any professional who may be called upon to give evidence in any legal forum; civil or criminal.
The procedures in giving evidence, the order of events in court, the roles of different people in the court and the process of giving evidence will be explained. The techniques lawyers use to disconcert and discredit witnesses will also be examined.
The morning session is designed to demystify the process of giving evidence. In the afternoon session delegates will experience being cross-examined by a lawyer on a fictional case study. The trainer will give constructive feedback on their particular witness box presentation.
The cross-examination skills course is an intensive and highly practical day, delivered by qualified lawyers.
The day commences with a quick review of key learning points from our Courtroom Skills Training, including analysis of techniques that lawyers use to disconcert witnesses and how best to deal with them.
Delegates are then paired with another delegate each of whom acts as the others coach for the day. Each delegate is then cross-examined by the trainer, which is video recorded. Delegates receive detailed feedback from the trainer with the aid of some video playback.
With the benefit of what they have learned and input from their coach, they have a further opportunity to be cross-examined, where they can put into practice, suggestions from their first session, so as to improve their evidence giving ability. Each delegate will take away their recording for further learning.
Our Cross-examination Skills training day follows on from our Courtroom Skills day and builds on what was learned on the previous day.
Both days involve learning how to present evidence in the witness box and give the attendee a chance to practice their skills by taking part in a cross-examination role-play.
This cross examination skills course further increases the confidence and effectiveness of an individual when giving evidence in any legal forum whether civil or criminal.
