Event Details

Advocacy” is something which is at the heart of being a barrister.  For many of us, that skill is practised in court, but for others it is practised in meetings, briefings, and negotiations.

Whatever the forum, many returners feel a degree of anxiety about using this skill, concerned that they will be rusty and less effective than they need to be.

The purpose of this session is to provide a relaxed and constructive environment in which to remind participants of the skills they have, and which are needed to be an effective advocate in any forum.

This event is open to Middle Temple Hall Members and Benchers only. Attendance is free but booking is required.
