About the Conference Workshop:
Proudly presented by the Civil Practice Committee of The Law Society of Singapore, the 2-day workshop (7 & 8 April 2016) was designed to allow practitioners to develop and hone their litigation skills on a practical level. As with the first workshop in 2014, the trainers were Queen’s Counsel and Senior Counsel, together with senior members of the Singapore Bar.
The Workshop was delivered using a case study approach and small group learning. Delegates were grouped according to their years of practice and litigation experience for the breakout session. A shared and developing case study designed specifically for the Workshop was used throughout both days by all delegates, covering the following topics:
Session 1: Understanding, Preparing & Presenting Your Case
Session 2: Interim & Chambers Advocacy
Session 3: Trial Advocacy
Session 4: Appellate Advocacy
The workshop also included a mock cross-examination by trainers, and the sharing of insights on the handling of expert witnesses, and discussion of SICC (Singapore International Commercial Court) processes and procedures.
