For a young lawyer who has just entered the world of litigation, the profession is very tough and demanding. While you learn the law in law school, litigation practice is a completely different ball game altogether. There are absolutely essential things an advocate needs to know which are not taught in law school and you only learn after you have been practicing for a few years. Our endeavour with this programme is to give you all the knowledge and skills you need to be an effective litigator from day one. Created by practicing advocates, this programme is the ultimate guide to litigation for a fresh lawyer who is just beginning a career in litigation. The programme contains three modules, each of which you can take separately or together as per your needs.

Quais são os objetivos da formação?

Yet, young (and ambitious) junior litigators form one of the fastest growing sections of the legal profession by number. If you are one of them, how will you ensure that you fulfil your potential?’s Toolkit for a Litigating Career will help you do that. The first few years are typically the hardest in the career of a litigator. The learning curve is steep, and you are expected to contribute meaningfully to any case you are involved in from day one.
