What the Advocacy Toolkit consists of:
The ACLEA Award Winning Advocacy Toolkit consists of short videos demonstrating oral advocacy, annotated with spoken and text commentary throughout. Additional materials provide practice tips and explanations. The videos demonstrate both effective and ineffective advocacy. The videos follow a single fact pattern, but only short clips are shown to focus on the microskills of oral advocacy. Note that the actors playing the parts of counsel and the witness vary from one demonstration to the next.
The skills demonstrated include:
  • theory of the case
  • opening
  • chambers applications
  • examination for discovery
  • direct examination
  • cross-examination
  • refreshing memory
  • objections
  • impeaching the witness through prior inconsistent statement
  • closing

Video demonstrations total: 138 minutes
