Advocacy is the art of persuasion in court.

The Australian Advocacy Institute Advocacy Skills Workshops provide lawyers at all levels with an opportunity
to improve essential advocacy skills, including effective preparation, performance and communication skills,
in a supportive learning environment.

Participation in an AAI workshop will give you an opportunity to work with and learn from experienced

and skilled advocates who have been trained to help you improve your advocacy.

The AAI offers 3 workshop options:

  • General, Advanced and Specialist advocacy skills workshops open to all members of the legal profession.
  • In-house advocacy skills workshops and programs for law firms and government bodies.
  • Specially tailored workshops for organisations having a right of appearance before any tribunal or hearing.

A not-for-profit institution, the AAI believes all people are entitled to quality legal representation by
skilled and ethical legal advocates.
