This book introduces the reader to the practice of advocacy, drawing on a wide range of examples from the UK and other common law jurisdictions. Through the use of exercises, the reader is encouraged to think about the skills of effective advocacy from the planning stage to execution. Detailed materials are provided for the stimulation of advocacy exercises in both criminal and civil matters.

A real criminal trial is used as a thematic case study for the chapters on analysis, opening, examination, cross-examination and closing. The technique of the great advocate Sir Norman Birkett QC is examined in detail. The second edition has been updated to incorporate the new Civil Procedure Rules and includes a new chapter on the courses designed by the professional regulatory bodies to raise standards across the next generation of barristers and solicitors advocates.

Presenting to Persuade;Conduct; Planning; Opening; Questioning; Cross-examining; Summarising and Concluding; Advocacy in Practice 1; Advocacy in Practice 2; The Framework of Professional Advocacy Training.
