Excellence in Advocacy

An Introduction to Pleas in Mitigation Training

The Inns of Court College of Advocacy is pleased to invite selected QCs, Senior Juniors and Junior Practitioners to attend a pilot Pleas in Mitigation Training to be held on Tuesday 3 July 2018.

Advocacy is a performance skill that can be likened to that of a tennis player or professional musician. Whilst it has generally been accepted that such skills are about 20% innate and 80% learned, that is now being revised downwards to about 5% and 95% respectively. This underscores the need for training at all levels.

The aim of this Pleas in Mitigation training is to improve CPD in a niche area. This will be achieved through online learning followed by a face-to-face evening course in this specialist area.
