Abstract

Advocacy involves the presentation to a judge of two competing versions of the facts, of the law, or both. This chapter discusses the skills of solicitor advocacy. It focuses on identifying key principles of the ethics of advocacy; understanding the structure of a case presented for trial; developing a case presentation strategy incorporating the client’s goals; making an effective submission; and planning an examination-in-chief and cross-examination using appropriate questions.
