The Australian Bar Association's Appellate Advocacy course will be held in Brisbane on 8-10 September 2017. This intensive involves a realistic brief and detailed preparation, including written submissions and performances in real court settings before appellate judges. The intensive will promote excellence in appellate advocacy through the development of relevant skills.
Groups are small and the coach-to-participant ratio is high. Performances are recorded in-court before an appellate court judge, and then reviewed separately with senior members of the Australian Bar. Voice and movement coaching is also available from a professional coach. There are only 24 positions available. Seniority of at least eight years at the private bar is a pre-requisite.
