Learning level: Essentials | Advanced Building on Foundations By attending this intensive, you will build upon the foundations that you acquired through the Solicitor Advocate Course: Foundations. The workshop consists of a combination of interactive general sessions and performance in small groups. In particular, this session will examine the case theory as it relates to evidence-in-chief, cross-examination and final submissions. Advanced This workshop is the third level in the Solicitor Advocate Course series. It is preferable that you have either completed the Foundations and Building on Foundations courses or have had some experience in appearing in court before you undertake this workshop. This session consists of a combination of interactive general sessions and performance in small groups. In particular, this workshop concentrates on skills in questioning witnesses, primarily in cross examination, based on final argument in support of case theory. Before questioning a witness, participants will present a short submission to the judge / instructor outlining the argument the subsequent questioning will support. The case study may include lay or expert witnesses. The Queensland Law Society have partnered with the Australian Advocacy Institute to offer an outstanding course that combines theory and practical sessions with participants performing set advocacy tasks in a group before an instructor, then receiving individual feedback directed to the level of the participant’s performance. These tasks include applying for/opposing an application or plea, examining and cross-examining a witness and presenting a closing argument. The course cost is subsidised and numbers are strictly limited; register early to secure your place. Candidates should be fully prepared and have read the materials that will be supplied via email the week prior to the course date.
