Update to the profession: Advocacy Training Council updates toolkits

6 November 2013

Update to the profession: The Advocacy Training Council's 'Advocacy Gateway', which hosts a wide range of resources that offer guidance and best practice for advocates, has updated its range of toolkits. 

The toolkits provide advocates with general good practice guidance which can aid them in their preparation for trials involving vulnerable witnesses or defendants.

The Advocate's Gateway website  also houses an extensive catalogue of resources about dealing with vulnerable witnesses and defendants, including materials on procedure, as well as relevant articles and reports.
