Advocacy - overview
A growing number of professionals now assist in preparing cases for court, or appear in courts and tribunals taking the role of the advocate, questioning witnesses and making speeches at the hearing.
This can be a daunting responsibility: cases can be won or lost on the basis of the advocacy.
This practical, hands-on advocacy training course will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out this role, and will give you a greater understanding of how cases must be prepared.
The Advocacy training course can count towards the 8-day nationally recognised qualification - the Advanced Professional Certificate In Investigative Practice – or towards the 2-day Professional Award in Advocacy.
