During this course delegates tackle drafting statements of case in the civil courts from first principles.

Delegates analyse the case to arrive at a case theory and develop this as a basis for the structure of Particulars of Claim.

Analysis of Particulars of Claim leads to development of a case theory and structure for a Defence and Counterclaim. Delegates’ skills are then developed further, in the context of a case study, so they are able to draft competent, precise, and concise statements of case.
