WITNESS BOX THE ART OF GIVING EVIDENCE
The Art of Giving Evidence provides witness familiarisation training for the public and private sectors whose staff may find themselves asked to give witness statements and ultimately evidence at court or a tribunal.
Witness Box is a training programme that combines the knowledge of British legal experts to educate, inform and prepare potential witnesses for the daunting experience of giving evidence. Established by award-winning expert witness Trevor Gilbert, our witness familiarisation training is a ‘must have’ for anyone called to give evidence.
So what is witness familiarisation? It is a relatively new concept and an invaluable aid to any potential witness set to give evidence in court, at a tribunal, or any other hearing. Courses in this subject will provide you with the fundamentals of courtroom etiquette, legal protocol and process and give you the tools you need for a calm and confident appearance on the stand.
Is that allowed? Unlike ‘witness coaching’, which is strictly prohibited, witness familiarisation is an encouraged, acceptable method of preparing witnesses for court. Witness Box courses comply with guidelines set out under UK case law [R v Momodou & Limani 2005] and The Bar Code of Conduct. Delegates are trained with non-specific scenarios and ‘mock cross-examinations’ designed to give them awareness and situational training.
Our range of interactive user-friendly yet highly professional courses suit every need, allowing you to ‘pick and mix’ from half, single or two-day according to your needs. You decide when and where your course should be run. Our courses are delivered in clear, concise language, leaving no room for confusion or doubt.
We focus on the individual and provide each delegate with personal feedback. As an added bonus we offer an additional one hour’s free support to each individual before a hearing.
We offer a range of bespoke courses depending on numbers attending and the nature of the trial/hearing. Please visit our Courses page.
