The witness box can be a lonely place. Many witnesses feel they’re on trial, standing in the dock rather than giving independent testimony to assist the court. Often, witnesses are unfamiliar with this environment, but a poor performance can undermine confidence and credibility. This suite of courses are designed to prepare expert witnesses so they may provide credible, accurate and professional evidence at court.
Courtroom Skills for Professional Witnesses
Courtroom Skills is an intensive and highly practical training day. First, we examine the theory, practice and procedure of giving evidence, demystifying the process. Then, you’re cross-examined on a case study that you prepare in your field of expertise. A professional trainer, who’s an experienced lawyer, gives constructive feedback on your witness-box presentation.
