Brown Bag Seminar One: Courtroom Etiquette

When: 1pm - 2pm, Friday 28 June 2019

Where: Bell Gully, Vero Centre, Shortland St

The first in our series of Brown Bag seminars for 2019 examines the finer points of courtroom etiquette. It takes many years of experience, of court appearances and trials to fully understand the nuances of a courtroom and to be completely at ease in this environment. Young practitioners are often unaware of how to properly address the court and of the expectations of the judge. It is one thing to understand the law and present a case but it is also essential to make a good impression. This seminar will explore: 

-             Stated and unstated rules of conduct for litigants

-             Addressing the judge

-             Correct conduct in court and protocols

-             Rules that relate to electronic devices

-             Appropriate clothing

-             General behaviour in court

The presenters are Hon. Justice Fitzgerald and Daniel McLellan QC. 

The LRF is grateful for the support and assistance of the Auckland Branch of the New Zealand Law Society and Auckland Young Lawyers Committee.
