About The Event

Proceedings in the Civil Court are governed by rules of procedure which are intricate and labyrinthine in nature. For litigation counsel, whose call to duty begins long before the actual trial, grasping and deciphering these rules, as fundamental as it may seem, is a daunting task that oftentimes requires a herculean effort on their part. It bears no reminder that a misstep in applying these rules can be disastrous. It can mean that their labour and appearances before the Registrars or Judges as the case may be will be short-lived and unfruitful, or just an exercise in futility.

CLJ’s “Workshop on Civil Procedure: Developing Advocacy and Scholarship in Procedural Applications” aspires to engage the solicitors concerned on what’s new and current in the law on Civil Procedure. The topics chosen for dissection, of necessity, relate manifestly to substantive issues that routinely come before the court, and are hence matters of distinct significance to counsel and litigants. More, these topics will be addressed by distinguished speakers of great repute and learning, and delegates, therefore, can expect to be refreshed and armed with such litigation knowledge and skills.
