Ian Kelcey explains why all criminal solicitor advocates should undertake the Bar Council / Law Society’s vulnerable witness training for their own personal development, and to keep pace with their counterparts at the bar.
This one-day course is primarily aimed at senior practitioners with higher rights of audience who would like to develop their advocacy skills outside of the court setting.
The Law Society has partnered with the highly-regarded City Law School, to deliver interactive advocacy training to our members.
The Law Society has partnered with highly respected youth justice charity, Just for Kids Law to offer members specialist training in youth justice advocacy.
Law Society and Bar Council announce bespoke training programme for solicitor advocates and barristers who question vulnerable witnesses in court during criminal trials.
The Advocacy and the Vulnerable Training was developed in conjunction with the Bar to help solicitor advocates and barristers strike the balance between advancing their client’s case effectively in court whilst ensuring vulnerable witnesses are not subjected to undue stress.
The SRA’s Youth Court Advocacy toolkit is now live.
