Training for advocates working with children and vulnerable witnesses.

This course has been designed to ensure that all advocates, when dealing with vulnerable witnesses, understand the key principles behind the approach to and questioning of vulnerable people in the justice system.

Training materials have been prepared by the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) and training is being delivered by the Inns and Circuits. Sessions will be led by barristers and judges who have been trained to facilitate the sessions. It is anticipated that Advocacy and the Vulnerable training will become mandatory for any advocate wishing to undertake publicly funded work in serious sexual offence cases involving vulnerable witnesses.
