Courtroom Advocacy: A View From the Bench

Law school is out, and for some of us is a distant memory. Do you crave the days of marks and feedback? Ever wonder what grade you might earn in the courtroom, or where you might need a refresher? The CBA Alberta hopes to fill that need with the help of Court of Queen's Bench Justices M.R. Bast, M.D. Gates, D.R. Mah and B.L. Bokenfohr (moderator).

Join them for a 90-minute Q&A-style discussion on their observations from the bench, complete with advocacy examples and suggestions for improvement. 

Topics covered will include the following:

  • Advocacy basics;
  • Civility;
  • Self-represented litigants;
  • Affidavits - the good, the bad and the ugly; 
  • Documentary evidence - the good, the bad and the ugly II;
  • Effective courtroom presentation;
  • Costs; and
  • Dealing with difficult judges.
