It will provide skills training equivalent to Bar School standards, and is designed to instil core techniques, build self-confidence, and polish presentational ability in solicitor-advocates and in-house counsel, who prosecute and defend in this area of work.

The course is delivered by Andrew Hall KC, a Gray’s Inn Advocacy Trainer, and former chairman of the Criminal Bar Association with decades of experience of complex and serious criminal casework, who has taught advocacy techniques to the profession for many years, both here and abroad.
