Excellence in Advocacy

Visit to Poland - 2016

At the end of September 2016, ICCA sent a team of five trainers to teach advocacy at a two-day conference hosted by the Wrocław Bar of Legal Counsel.

The training was attended by legal advisors and advocates from all over Poland as well as a participant from Georgia and an observer from Moldova. The sessions were led by Stephen Murch who was accompanied by David Dabbs, Paul Rogers, Peter Clark and Mark Engelman.

The College trainers were invited to participate in a lively question and answer session discussing the differences in procedure between the two jurisdictions in advance of the traditional training.

The participants demonstrated a good standard of English which enabled demonstration of their abilities when examining-in-chief and closing submissions. The trainees’ thorough reading of the materials along with their personal research ensured the submission of good standards skeleton arguments.

ICCA plans to return to Wrocław in the near future to continue developing the strong bond emerging between the two jurisdictions. Follow this link to download the full report.
