Although the most characteristic of legal skills, representing clients in courts and tribunals is a skill which until recently was not taught. It was picked up by watching others and trying out one's own fears with little, if any, feedback. This book aims to change all that. There are no war stories and no solecisms. The work of advocacy is clearly divided into its constituent parts and each elements is covered in terms of both approach and content. The book is both a reading book and a course book and examples and exercises are given throughout. The approach is to build upon the new advocate's existing skills rather than mimicking an imagined ideal. It is also intended to be fun to read.
