Course Content

Many people attend court and represent themselves and find that although they know what they want to explain to the Judge, the Judge is not listening.

The reason is usually that they are trying to discuss things which are not what the Judge needs to know. The Judge has a job to do, to decide how to progress the case. He needs specific information presented in a clear logical way in order to fully understand what he needs to do.

This course explains how to present yourself, how to present your case and is based on nearly 20 years of facing Judges at the sharp end and getting the right message across to the Judge.
