Advocacy (Courtroom & Arbitration) training course for UK solicitors and lawyers trained in other jurisdictions (e.g. USA, France, Poland). Tailored-made courses also available for groups and individuals. Maximum 8 people per class.
New rules which allow Solicitors to conduct advocacy in court are an excellent step in providing greater representation options for society. However, when it comes to courtroom action (or arbitration), solicitors are disadvantaged – advocacy is not part of their training.
This course is designed to equip solicitors, and other lawyers, with advocacy skills similar to those of Barristers. In addition, the course is enhanced with the latest findings of neuroscience and psychological science, applicable to advocacy.
This course is directed by Fatos Selita, an English barrister and a New York State Attorney, with over 9 years of experience in advocacy and public speaking training internationally, including in the UK, USA and Russia. Additionally, Fatos is a trainer in Brain Processes and Mind Influences on Decision making, as well as the director of the ‘Brain and the Mind’ course.
This course is inspired by the access to justice agenda of AIR course directors, who also research on the impact of inequality on human development. For this reason, the costs of running this course are subsidised by the UKLSA, InLab and TAGC.
The course provides ample opportunity for individualised training and feedback on practical exercises.
