Course description

Employment Advocacy - Conducting Tribunals with Confidence

With the stated aim of avoiding unnecessary formality, Employment Tribunals are a very different animal to other courts in the UK. This means that parties may be represented at hearings by a range of people including their own HR team or specialist solicitors or barristers. There are particular challenges even for those who already have some advocacy experience in other courts, such as opening a case without an opening submission or examination in chief, presenting a case effectively whilst seated and dealing with unrepresented opponents to name just a few.

This course will provide you with the essential building blocks to prepare and present a case effectively in the Employment Tribunal. You will also gain inside knowledge and tricks of the trade from our experienced presenters.

The course uses case study and discussion throughout the course of the day and culminates in a mini-hearing in which you will participate fully.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course will be of benefit to lawyers or HR professionals who are starting out with a Tribunal caseload and/or who may be called upon to represent a party in the Employment Tribunal.
