Synopsis

What could you change tomorrow to present yourself, your case and your profession in a better light? From how to read the trier of fact to what not to wear, this seminar will cover a raft of dos and don’ts on behavioural matters you’ve either been too embarrassed to ask about or were not even aware were issues. With judicial and counsel insights and perspectives, this On Demand seminar serves as a timely refresher and update for all litigators.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain insights into what is visible from the bench and receive guidance on ways in which you can enhance, rather than undermine, your case.
  • Learn about the unwitting (and sometimes grating) errors that are frequently made in court, their impact and how to avoid them.
  • Refresh your understanding of important matters such as appropriate communication with and respect for the courts and their staff, punctuality, managing clients and witnesses in the courtroom including seating and attire, the attitude to counsel working on other files when in court, filing times and when adjournments might be granted.

Who should view?

All litigators, regardless of the fora in which they appear.
