News and advice for solicitor advocates from the Law Society on civil, family and criminal advocacy issues.
Advocacy skills can be crucial in shaping the outcome of a case. Our practical resources will help you become more effective as an advocate in whichever court you appear in.

The CoA has considered the responsibilities of judge, advocates and children's guardian in cases where one of the parties is representing themselves. Zimran Samuel explains what important reminders advocates and family solicitors can take from it.
Amanda Yip QC examines a case which serves as a reminder of the 'privileges and responsibilities of advocates' and the burden of 'twin responsibilities, both to the client and to the court'.
