A series of special lectures in honour of Charles L. Dubin, former Chief Justice of Ontario, upon his retirement
A warm blend of wisdom and wit, these outstanding lectures, part of a series created by The Advocates' Society, provide an unorthodox look at the trials and tribulations of the trial advocate and offer a host of tips to improve your advocacy skills. Each speaker draws on his experience and knowledge based on a lifetime of advocacy work and gives you an invaluable look into the ways of successful trial advocates. Footnotes provide cites of cases and articles referred to for further in-depth research should you so choose.
Explore with these esteemed advocates:
- The ups and downs of the judge/advocate relationship
- The importance of asking the 'right' opening question
- Why the advocate must go behind appearances and find out what is actually bothering the court ... and much more!
This volume of The Dubin Lectures on Advocacy
includes the first three lectures from the ongoing series created in 1988.
