ADVOCACY TRAINING - 26 MARCH 2020
Birmingham Law Society is running an advocacy training program for those lawyers who have limited experienced at attending District Judge appointments in civil/commercial claims. The aim of this training is to provide an introduction to advocacy in District Judge appointments and to ensure that our local lawyers are meeting the minimum standards of advocacy that are expected by the Courts.
The program for Thursday's advocacy training will consist of an introduction to advocacy at No5 Chambers where you will participate in an interactive workshop covering the basic elements of good advocacy.
This will then be followed by a tour of the Birmingham District Registry and a meeting with one or two District Judges who will discuss the "dos and don'ts" of advocacy before District Judges.
We have limited spaces available for this event and so will be operating a “first come, first serve” basis. This training is specifically tailored to Newly Qualified Practising Solicitors and is unsuitable for student members at this time.
The program will begin at 12:30pm and should finish at around 5pm.
Tickets for this event are £20+VAT and numbers are limited to 20 places.
