Learn the skills to help deliver confident & credible testimony in a courtroom setting

Often, a poor performance in the courtroom setting can undermine the credibility of the information being presented by an expert. 

This one day CPD course will show you the steps to improve your own performance in a courtroom setting. We will provide you with the information and skills required to confidently present on the stand. We will also cover the key techniques to improve your own communication skills with emphasis on the courtroom environment, and will give you an overview of civil litigation and rules of evidence. Trained by a practicing barrister with years of experience, this CPD course will ensure you are prepared and confident when called on to give a testimony in court.

All attendees will get a chance to engage in an informative Q & A session, and will receive a highly informative course pack, and leave with 5 structured CPD Points.
