General Advocacy Skills Workshop
A Foundation for Effective Advocacy
This exciting program gives you the opportunity to practise trial techniques and strategies with the assistance of a faculty of experienced instructors who will offer constructive and practical suggestions to improve your advocacy.
The AAI conducts all workshops in simulated courtroom sessions. You will be given various advocacy tasks to perform, including Opening Submissions, Leading Evidence, Cross Examination and Closing Argument which you will present before a judge/instructor as you would in an actual court situation. You will receive immediate feedback on your performance from trained AAI Instructors. Later, you will be able to repeat your performance to incorporate what you have learned. You will also benefit from seeing the other participants' performances and hearing their performance reviews.
This supportive, noncompetitive simulation, together with faculty demonstrations, suggested readings and personal attention, helps you develop and improve your own personal and highly effective style of advocacy.
Designed for practitioners at all levels across all jurisdictions, this workshop involves instruction, performance and review of the skills, disciplines and techniques involved in good advocacy. .

Carefully Selected Faculty
The AAI strives to select a dynamic faculty for each program based on their professional expertise in advocacy. They will bring their experience to your learning through their evaluations of your performance as well as by lecture and demonstration. Faculty members know there is no one correct way to present certain issues. They will help you find the technique that best fits your particular abilities and strengths.
The AAI believes in the learning-by-doing methodology, which is highly effective in small groups of participants teamed with one or two faculty members. This arrangement allows for intensive individual instruction.
