Introduction to Civil Litigation Skills 2021

Add to CPD Planner

 

Surveys of recently admitted practitioners repeatedly identify civil litigation as the area in which most practitioners in their first years of practice want formal training. This programme responds to this need and complements both the skills-based pre-admission courses and the annual NZLS CLE Litigation Skills Programme.

As a recently admitted practitioner, you should not miss this unique opportunity to develop practical skills in civil litigation and ensure you will be able to face a court case with confidence.

In this intensive, small-group workshop you will:

  • Work through a summary judgment claim
  • Identify and understand the various steps in the process
  • Develop the practical skills you need to handle this, and other litigation files, competently and confidently
  • Learn how to draft pleadings, evidence and submissions
  • Become aware of the ethical issues involved
  • Learn how to present an argument in court and improve your advocacy skills.

Learning objectives

You will understand how to prepare for and conduct a civil trial. You will know how to organise case materials and draft various court documents.

Format

Presenters will take you through lectures, discussions and preparing the documents in groups. Participants will present their individually drafted oral submissions on Day Two.

Who should attend

Recently admitted practitioners and those in their first two to three years of practice.
