The Law Society of Saskatchewan recently offered its membership an intensive hands-on workshop on developing exceptional family law Chambers advocacy skills.
The twenty-four participants of the workshop were assigned exercises designed to develop their skills in oral submissions, as well as writing notices of applications, affidavits and memos of law. After each skills performance, they received feedback from the instructors.
As a member of the faculty of four lawyers and four judges, Sean Sinclair critiqued and offered constructive suggestions to participants and provided them with the opportunity to observe effective advocacy skills through demonstration.
The two-day professional development workshop was held in Regina.
