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.
