Programme Outline

The witness box is a lonely place. Many witnesses or indeed experts feel they are on trial, standing in the dock rather than giving independent testimony to assist the court. Often these people are unfamiliar with this environment as few cases go to full trial, but a poor performance can undermine confidence and credibility. This Courtroom Skills Training is an intensive one/two week, highly practical and experimental training course. This is no mere lecture with hints and tips. An experienced lawyer, who is a trained trainer, will examine the theory, practice and procedure of giving evidence, and demystifying the process. An experienced judge / magistrate will be presiding over the proceedings to bring a sense of realism to this training.
