This course will familiarise you with the various aspects of advocacy and the tasks of a judge. We will discuss court proceedings 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.
As the number of participants is limited, please register for the course with Mrs. Van der Eijk-Spaan on firstname.lastname@example.org. stating your level of proficiency in English and any FRS courses you have completed so far.
The final mark will depend on an oral presentation in the form of a closing speech in class and a written exam at the end of the course.
