Over the past few weeks Solicitors in the Criminal Defence department here at Bhatia Best have been undertaking specialist ‘Advocacy and the Vulnerable’ training. This in-depth training programme has been provided by a Queen’s Counsel (QC) from the local Bar and overseen by The Law Society.
The ‘Advocacy and the Vulnerable’ training programme has been designed to ensure that all advocates, when dealing with vulnerable witnesses, understand the key principles behind the approach to and questioning of vulnerable people in the justice system.
The ‘Advocacy and the Vulnerable’ training was developed in conjunction with the Bar to help solicitors and barristers strike the balance between advancing their client’s case effectively whilst ensuring vulnerable witnesses are not subjected to undue stress.
This training is demonstrative of the importance that Bhatia Best places in ensuring that our Solicitors are experts in their respective area of law, along with the need for individual professional development.
If you require expert Criminal Defence advice, please contact Bhatia Best today on 0115 950 3231.
