Trial Advocacy Training For State Lawyers

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) completed a third three-day Trial Advocacy Training Course last weekend.

The course was conducted by three International Advocacy Training Council (IATC) accredited advocacy teachers, Chow Wee from Malaysia, Giles Surman from Hong Kong and Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions, Michael Delaney, from October 14-16  in Suva.

This is part of the ODPP’s continuing commitment to raise the standards of criminal trial advocacy in Fiji.

The advocacy training is based on the Hampel Method. The Hampel Method is used by the Bar Council of England and Wales, the Hong Kong Bar Association, the Malaysian Bar Council, the Bar Council of Ireland, the Australian Bar Association, the New Zealand Bar Association and the General Council of the Bar of South Africa to train their barristers.
