2019 Cross-examination Seminar and Workshop


New Barristers’ Committee Cross-examination Seminar and Workshop

The New Barristers’ Committee is conducting a Cross-examination Seminar and Workshop in February and March 2019. This year’s (free) cross-examination workshop is aimed at encouraging junior barristers to practice their cross-examination skills on each other before attending the demonstration to watch senior members of the profession cross-examine and discuss their approach to the same problem. The two-part workshop is relevant to both civil and criminal practitioners.

The seminar will be held on 21 February 2019. The seminar will discuss cross-examination technique. The speakers will provide guidance on cross-examination in an open and relaxed forum, with questions from the floor. The speakers will be Michelle Painter SC (9th floor, Selbourne Chambers) and Marcus Pesman SC (Queen's Square Chambers).

The workshop will be held on 28 March 2019 and will include a demonstration of cross-examination technique by two senior counsel. The demonstration will take place in the Banco Court, Level 13, Supreme Court, starting at 5.15pm. The presiding judge will be The Honourable Justice Bellew.
