[downloads disabled 13.2.18]

 

These are in 'pdf' form… please let me know if you have any problems downloading or opening these files.

 

Can you please immediately open the TIMETABLE document.  Here you will find important information regarding the format and your role and preparation for the workshop, as well as details of the tasks that have been set for the "Student Advocates" who have volunteered to present on the day.

 

I recommend you familiarise yourself with the "Advocacy Instructor's Handbook", as this will form the basis of the instruction at the workshop.

 

Dress code for the training is casual. Refreshments and lunch will be provided on Saturday.

Teaching at Keble Advanced International Advocacy Course, Oxford, UK

 

In September 2017, AAI Chair Justice Ann Ainslie-Wallace and AAI Board Member Craig Smith SC, were invited by the UK Inns of Court College of Advocacy to join the instructing faculty at the annual Advanced International Advocacy Workshop for the UK South Eastern Circuit (i.e London and immediate regions). Another AAI Board Member, Grant Brady SC, also taught at the course as a representative of the Australian ATC.

 

Justice Ann Ainslie-Wallace had previously taught at this course in 2016.

 

 

An article subsequently appeared in the South East Circuit newsletter, written by one of the students attending the workshop.  Honourable mentions were included for our instructors.
