Combining the best elements of the old Intensive and Intensive Plus courses, this course provides an excellent and thorough introduction to the trial or hearing process. Using footage of actual cross-examinations, we explain and demonstrate good techniques and bad habits in giving evidence. The witness will then benefit from cross-examination practice to suit their individual circumstances, using real life experiences which are personal to each witness. This means the witness does not have to learn any artificial role plays. Working alongside a leading barrister will be an expert communications trainer, who along with the barrister will analyse and transform the witness’ ability to give evidence, through detailed video analysis and feedback of the witness’ performance. This enhances the witness’ self-awareness and learning experience.
