Increased legal advocacy skills and confidence: a practical, hands-on workshop. 28-29 April 2016.
The Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (QLD) Ltd will gather its statewide team of 37 Family, Child Protection, Civil Law legal practitioners and paralegals for its inaugural advocacy skills development program in Brisbane this month.
Workshop leaders include Barristers Craig Smith, presentation specialist, Jane FitzGerald, with workshop guidance training from Professional Development specialist, Margaret Voight. This team will provide innovative, customised advocacy coaching for our growing workforce.
Supporting Barristers-at-Law will guide each ATSILS staff member in small teams relating to core case planning and theory.
The aims of this program are to:
- increase your understanding of how to better prepare for your appearance in court,
- develop the skills for effective court advocacy, and
- build your confidence as a professional advocate.
This 2016 project forms part of the emerging ATSILS Workforce Development Cultural Plan and is available exclusively to ATSILS employees.
