Criminal Advocacy (5240LAW)

Criminal advocacy is an art. Much in it depends on the successful engagement of pre-existing intellectual and personality skills of the advocate. Much also depends on experience. But despite that there are basic techniques that can be taught and learnt. In this course, students will work in a small group to prepare, and most importantly practice, basic advocacy technique in a variety of situations. Those situations include basic speaking technique such as pace, pitch, posture, gesture, use of notes and related issues. Further, there will be guided preparation and practice in such areas as: advocacy on legal matters to judicial officers; advocacy on factual matters to judicial officers and juries; examination-in-chief; cross-examination; and written advocacy. Students should take from the course an understanding of the fundamentals of advocacy to form a foundation upon which to build in their careers.
