FLPA Cross Examination Twilight Workshop
Well that was interesting!
Spend this evening at the Family Courts building in Brisbane doing a workshop on cross-examination of witnesses run by Family Law Practitioner’s Association (FLPA) in conjunction with family report writers. It was kind of weird being at Court at night, but it was an excellent experience.
It started with some guidance provided by several highly experienced barristers and judges including Neil McGregor and Ted Jordan and their Honours Judge Jarret and Judge Coates. We were then given a hypothetical scenario and assigned to various Court rooms. The family report writers got practice being in the witness box and lawyers got to practice conducting effective cross-examination. Feedback was then provided by the barristers and judges.
Fabulous way to learn and hone skills! Thanks FLPA for organising this event.
