About our Courtroom Skills training
There are many circumstances in which public sector employees are called to give evidence in legal forums; the prospect of being a witness in a legal case or process can be daunting. Learning how to present evidence and respond to questions under cross-examination in a legal forum is a key skill for any person required to appear as a witness. Delivering your evidence requires an understanding and familiarity of the processes involved in the different types of legal fora.
The process of cross-examination, which is a hallmark of our adversarial system, can call into question your own competence and challenge the veracity of the evidence that you deliver. Anticipating and dealing with effective cross-examination to ensure that the evidence that you deliver is not unwittingly undermined or misinterpreted is also incredibly important for a witness.
To address these challenges, this workshop will examine all aspects impacting on the performance of expert witnesses, whether in a civil or criminal court. It will also look at key legislation on the topic.
The day will have ample time for questions and discussion of the presented topics.
Topics for discussion will include:
