and the rules of evidence under English law and practise opening speeches of the prosecution, the art of examination, cross- and
re-examination, and closing speeches of prosecution and defence barristers. In addition, we will discuss judgements and practise
the judge's summing up and sentencing, using sentencing guidelines for various crimes. The course contains both an oral and a
writing component. Basic knowledge of English criminal law is preferred for this course.
