Have you been asked to appear in court?  Have you been thrown in the deep end and not sure what’s expected of you?  The court room can be a stressful and intimidating place at the best of times, not to mention the relevant procedures and etiquette that legal practitioners need to be aware of. Don’t risk ‘sinking’ in a public forum.

This session will give you the confidence you need when appearing in the major jurisdictions.

This seminar covers the following:

  • Entering your appearance
  • Where to sit and when to stand
  • Announcing your appearance
  • Obtaining your client’s instructions from the bench
  • Handing up documents
  • Leaving the bar table
  • Addressing the person presiding
  • Interacting with opposing representatives
  • Standing matters down
  • Knowing when to speak
  • Preparing your client for court
  • Dealing with the Court registry
  • General etiquette issues – mobile phones, sound recording and attire

Plus, also receive practical advocacy tips for getting the best result for your client.
