Conducting advocacy in children and injunction cases
Recorded on: 30/11/2023
There is increasing pressure on family practitioners to carry out their own advocacy, particularly for contested and case management hearings and those involving live evidence. As more lawyers begin to conduct advocacy it is vital that their skills are sufficient to avoid nerves or a lack of confidence during a hearing.
This 1 hour webinar, split into two parts, will provide practical tips and examples to build confidence in carrying out advocacy in both children cases and injunctions for personal protection.
The first part of the webinar will focus on practical tips and the procedure of carrying out advocacy, in particular:
- How to prepare
- Using the law in family advocacy to boost your confidence
- Making submissions: structuring and analysing the case
- Skeleton arguments and submissions
- Without notice injunction applications
The second part of this webinar will involve watching some role play in calling live evidence, based on a factual scenario.
- Live hearings and calling evidence
- Effective examination-in-chief
- Contested interim care hearings
- Case management hearings
- Issues resolution and final hearings
- Remote hearings
