The course introduces students to the specialised skills required for trial preparation, trial technique and advocacy in both civil and criminal jurisdictions. It promotes development of an advanced and integrated understanding of the different types of advocacy in the various jurisdictions by using skills exercises in courts such as the Local and District Courts of New South Wales, and the Family and Circuit Courts of Australia. In addition, seminars are conducted on some specialist jurisdictions. The course concentrates on procedural law within several jurisdictions and enables students to apply their knowledge by developing their skills, autonomy, judgment and responsibility as a legal practitioner. Many of the litigation skills learnt in this course are applicable in other jurisdictions so students will benefit from the transferability of skills learned.
