Advocacy Club on Substack Announces Changes
We have reached critical mass and demonstrated real value.
We hope and trust that you have enjoyed your free access to the resources offered by this blog. Until this post, free subscribers and the public have had total access to the application of the weekly technique to Goldilocks v. The Three Bears, complete with suggested exercises. This access stops, effective with this posting. To get ongoing access to the detailed application of the techniques, please join as a paid subscriber. The financial commitment is minimal, and the benefits are substantial for those working on their advocacy skills. If you learn only one small thing a week, isn’t that worth a small outlay per month? And ask yourself, where else can you learn these techniques?
Paid subscribers can read about the weekly technique and listen to a short podcast with further discussion of the technique. Paid subscribers can also access a text file with the technique applied to the case study created from the facts of Donoghue v. Stevenson. Starting with Direct Examinations 1, we will demonstrate the technique in two ways - a senior counsel (recently retired, in my case) and a law student will each examine one of the case study witnesses.
If the techniques work for that case, they can work for any of your cases!
We invite paid subscribers to join in pairs or other small numbers to form study groups. Use the ‘chat’ function to put questions to us or to engage in a two-way conversation.
Where do we go from here? We are part-way through preparation for cross-examination. As we add techniques weekly, we will continue that topic and then move on to cover techniques relating to:
And we will revisit topics currently covered and introduce novel techniques, possibly with guest litigators adding their ‘special sauce’.
So thank you for your support to this point. We hope that you stay on board to enjoy the ride.
