This exercise is a practical session which will practise oral submissions in the Family Court. Although the exercise is set in the Family Court, no specialist knowledge is required and is relevant for all students. The focus of the exercise is on the student’s ability to make well-structured submissions, to identify the key points in a relatively complex factual chronology, and to demonstrate pragmatism.

Prior preparation is required. The exercise will be sent via email 1 week before session.
