CLEBC’s Advocacy Toolkit

Practice Point


Improve your oral advocacy skills with this on-demand resource—select the topic of interest when you need it.

CLEBC is proud to provide a new practice support and skill development learning tool: the Advocacy Toolkit. With this on-demand Toolkit, you can target the specific oral advocacy skills you need in court by watching short demonstration videos and reading the accompanying commentary, practice tips, and explanations.

Learn what to do and what not to do with videos demonstrating both effective and ineffective advocacy. Follow the fact pattern for a comprehensive overview or jump to a stand-alone module to learn exactly what you need, when you need it. The skills demonstrated include:

  • Theory of the Case
  • Opening
  • Chambers Applications
  • Examination for Discovery
  • Direct Examination
  • Cross-Examination
  • Refreshing Memory
  • Objections
  • Impeaching the witness through prior inconsistent statement
  • Closing

The Advocacy Toolkit is useful for lawyers at every experience level who have limited recent experience practicing their advocacy skills in court.
