CBA SKILLED LAWYER SERIES 2017


ESSENTIAL SKILLS FOR LITIGATORS


Whether most of your cases settle or you make regular appearances in court, the success of your litigation practice depends on the continuous refinement of your skills and knowledge.

In order to advocate effectively for your clients, you need to understand and implement best practices in litigation project management, client communication, settlement negotiation, and written and oral persuasion.

This eight-module curriculum explores the transferable skills that are essential at every stage of the litigation process – from the initial client intake meeting, and through the various steps leading to settlement or a final judgement in court.
 
A faculty of experienced litigators will walk you through practical and proven techniques for learning your case and keeping it on track ... managing client expectations ... knowing when and how to settle ... writing and presenting persuasive legal submissions ... and avoiding ethical pitfalls along the way.
