About the Programme

As the caseload of judges and arbitrators increases with the number and complexity of disputes, the time allocated for oral hearings has progressively decreased. Gone are the days where counsel could have free rein to deliver day-long opening and closing arguments. This, however, does not diminish the burden on advocates to fully develop their cases – the real change and challenge is a greater emphasis on written arguments.

While judges and arbitrators would prefer less lengthy written arguments, they are not above chiding counsel for extreme brevity that fails to establish a complete case theory. Achieving a good standard and balance in the art of written advocacy is therefore extremely difficult. One must observe the fundamentals without appearing formulaic and, above all, be persuasive without bending or ignoring adverse facts.

This workshop comprises five sessions with each session guiding participants through the gamut of fundamental skills necessary to write persuasively in various filings over the course of a dispute.

Who Should Attend

This workshop targets any PQE who are looking to develop or refresh their core skills in written advocacy. Our speakers and trainers are leading luminaries from the bench and bar with the necessary experience to offer advice and techniques for every skill level.

Participants are highly encouraged to attend all five sessions to achieve a more holistic learning experience across the different forms of written advocacy that forms the canvas of modern dispute resolution.

“In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” – Eric Hoffer
