Understanding Law & Procedure - December '16

A one day course designed to give the Expert Witness a grounding in the Law and Court Procedures in England and Wales.

This course is both an essential guide for the new expert before undertaking your first appointment and a useful refresher for the more experienced practitioner.

Report Writing Masterclass

An advanced course open only to experienced Expert Witnesses. Limited numbers only for this advanced training course.

Procedure Rules

Procedure Rules are the bedrock of Expert Witness work and compliance is mandatory. The Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) are deceptively simple and can trap the unwary.

The 60th update to CPR, introduced in April 2013, was designed to aid the enforcement of the Rules - adding to The Overriding Objective the phrase “enforcing compliance with rules, practice directions and orders”.

This is a practical course through the minefield.

Practical Law for Experts

An Expert Witness can sometimes feel like a ‘fish out of water’ when entering the legal arena. This course will give you a working knowledge of the structure of the legal system in which you will be working as well as outlining some of the differences between the basis of law both within the UK and in other jurisdictions.

An Introduction to 'Lawyer Speak'

Law is for Lawyers! Experts, Mediators and others need to avoid the temptation to (think) they are ‘knowledgeble in the law’.

Into Court

As an Expert you will be judged on the quality of your evidence - not just the quality of your opinion.

The courtroom can be a challenging and confrontational environment. If you are called to give evidence in the Witness Box you need to be confident of your courtroom skills.

This course is designed to give you the knowledge and experience of being in court.

Tying the Knot (Mediation Training- Module 3) - March '20

The third Module in TAE's Commercial Mediation Training Course.

Participants analyze and discuss the various skills and techniques required by the successful Mediator.

A major portion of the course is devoted to Case Studies and, by 'role play' participants develop their ability to appreciate these techniques and how to apply them in practical situations. Each Case Study is followed by a group critique to identify the strengths and weaknesses displayed and to improve individual performance and develop their skills and knowledge.

Mediator's Tutorial (Mediation Training - Module 2) - February '20

The second Module in TAE's Commercial Mediation Training Course.

This Module is intended to deal with some of the problems that occur during a mediation. It is not based upon 'role play', but consists of the analysis and discussion of situations that arise during all stages of a mediation.

In addition to being an integral part of training for the Register, it is particularly suitable for those already active as Mediators. It is open only to those who have completed at least one Mediator's Training Course or those already practising.

The Elements of ADR (Mediation Training - Module 1) - February '20

The first Module in TAE's Commercial Mediation Training Course.

This two day course is the foundation course for applicants for the Academy's Register of Qualified Mediators.

It provides a complete introduction to ADR in all its different guises and scrutinizes Mediation in depth.

Mediation is a flexible process but it has its own basic procedures. These procedures and the Mediator's techniques are examined and then applied by 'role play' to Case Studies which have been designed to highlight and develop the Mediator's skills.
