Advocacy – 5-day course

This course is designed and taught by barristers and psychologists.

Advocacy is an art, and a beautiful skill that can be mastered. As mastering advocacy skills requires self-improvements, in addition to advocacy training (as taught at the Bar), knowledge of psychological science, which will enable you to understand your capabilities, limitations and how to use them effectively, is essential.

In the same way, as advocacy is to do with people – persuading, examining witnesses, cross-examining witnesses, etc. – understanding the psychology of people makes advocacy much more effective. It also makes possible for ethical advocacy – advocacy which protects the truth and which protects the vulnerable – including, children and people with learning difficulties.
