The event will consider Inquiry procedure and process with specific emphasis on the role and approach to giving witness evidence. The event therefore aims to help those preparing for giving evidence at an Inquiry as well as those involved in the management of the Inquiry case and team. The event will feature a Mock Inquiry in order to demonstrate the good and bad of giving evidence, as well as some of the “tricks of the trade” employed by barristers in examining witnesses.
