I am part of the NSW Bar Association's New Barrister's Committee, and have been assisting in the organisation of the annual Cross-Examination Workshop which will be held in late February - March this year.
This workshop is only for "under 6" barristers, and helps to hone cross-examination skills. It is especially useful for barristers who are spending a lot of court hours being led as a junior. I completed it in my first year of practice, and found it a valuable exercise. Following some practical exercises, participants will also have a chance to see some experienced silks in action with the same material.
