During the workshops experienced litigators will share with participants knowledge and skills in working with the client, the court, and teams of specialists from various fields and jurisdictions.
The interest in the first edition of the Litigation Academy was high, and the participants’ feedback was so encouraging that we decided to organise another edition.
The knowledge of substantive and procedural law that law graduates take away from their formal studies is the bare minimum needed for representing clients in judicial and arbitration proceedings. To lead disputes, a young advocate or attorney-at-law needs to understand the nature of trials and their own role in the process.
To mark the firm’s 30th anniversary, the team from the firm’s Dispute Resolution & Arbitration practice have prepared an interesting proposal for students in their final years of law studies and current advocate and attorney-at-law trainees. The Litigation Academy offers a series of workshops and lectures led by experienced litigators. The aim is to provide a solid dose of practical knowledge on how to effectively and safely conduct litigation, in line with ethical principles and the mission of the legal profession.
The Litigation Academy is divided into two thematic modules—working with the client and analysing the case (15 – 17 March 2019), drafting pleadings and appearing before the court (22 – 24 March 2019). The workshops will include practical exercises such as mock interviews with clients, interrogation of witnesses, and drafting of pleadings. The classes will be conducted on the basis of a specially prepared case study and fictional case files. The participants will receive a handbook prepared by the law firm as well as other essential materials for the course.
To qualify for the Litigation Academy, applicants must submit their CV, motivational letter (no longer than one page, size A4) on or before 26 March 2019 and commit to participate in all sessions.
The workshops will be held at the firm’s office in Warsaw. Participation in the Litigation Academy is free of charge, but space is limited. The sessions will be conducted in Polish.
