EVENT: Advocacy & the Vulnerable – Training for Barristers

Posted April 20th, 2017 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘Inner Temple will be running two Advocacy and the Vulnerable training sessions for barristers on Saturday 17 June 2017. The Advocacy and the Vulnerable national training programme has been designed by His Honour Judge Rook QC, the Bar Council and the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) to ensure that all advocates, when dealing with vulnerable witnesses, understand the key principles behind the approach to and questioning of vulnerable people in the justice system. Training is being delivered by the Inns and Circuits and sessions will be led by barristers and judges who have been trained to facilitate these 3-hour sessions. It is anticipated that Advocacy and the Vulnerable training will become mandatory for any advocate wishing to undertake publicly funded work in serious sexual offence cases involving vulnerable witnesses.’

CPD: Course equivalent to 3 CPD hours plus 8 CPD hours for advance preparation

Open to practising barristers of all four Inns.

Date: 17th June 2017
