Announcing Advocacy in the IR Tribunals - 10 Week Training Course
17 May 2011
Wednesdays 29 June - 31 August, 5.30 - 7.30pm
This long-established course is suitable to aspiring industrial advocates from employer and union backgrounds.
Traditionally, advocates have appeared in federal and state industrial relations commissions, magistrates' courts and anti-discrimination tribunals. The advent of the Fair Work Act 2009 and Fair Work Australia, has brought some changes, however, the need to plan successful appearances and to develop quality advocacy skills remains constant. This course is not for people wanting just to sit and listen, as you will be expected to prepare and appear before simulated moots. Some prior industrial practice is an essential prerequisite, while some experience as an advocate or preparing cases is advised. To ensure a balanced mix of participants no more than two should register from any single organisation. Places for this course are limited and will book out quickly, we advise you to register as soon as possible.
