Strong advocacy skills are vital to the success of a barrister's career. Written by experienced advocates and advocate trainers, Advocacy has been designed to provide a highly practical introduction to the key skills and techniques which it is necessary to master in order to present a variety of applications and submissions to courts and tribunals with confidence. Full coverage of all aspects of advocacy is provided including guidance on making opening and closing speeches, planning and delivering examination-in-chief and cross-examination, and questioning witnesses. The manual also provides invaluable guidance, and examples of, the specific questioning techniques which can be employed in practice and highlights the ethical boundaries and rules within which an advocate must work. Covering the most common types of applications likely to be faced by junior barristers, a number of 'how-to-do-it' guides, contained in the final part of the manual, provide an invaluable insight into how particular applications should be made in practice. Also including a general guide to the preparation of skeleton arguments, types of proceedings covered by the 'how-to-do-it' guides include applying for injunctions or costs in a civil case, making a bail application or a submission of no case to answer in the criminal courts, or presenting a case at an employment tribunal. Advocacy is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners wishing to refine their advocacy skills.
