Advocacy is an essential part of the arbitral process in international arbitrations; however, it may be perceived as something highly technical that only Barristers can master. Counsel may also face additional challenges when using English language to conduct a cross examination if it is not their native language. In this event, we have invited Steven Lim, an arbitrator and a barrister at 39 Essex Court Chambers, to deliver a training session on how to deliver effective advocacy even if it is not your native language. The session will include a combination of an experience sharing from Steven and two other PRC-based international arbitration practitioners and a live demonstration of cross examining factual witnesses based a mock case showcasing the techniques.
开庭辩论是国际仲裁程序的重要组成部分，但常被认为只有"大律师"才能熟练掌握的高深技能。 对于母语不是英语的律师来说，开庭辩论往往更加让人望而却步。 本次活动我们邀请了39 Essex Court Chambers的仲裁员兼大律师Steven Lim，专门面向非英语母语的律师，针对如何有效进行开庭辩论提供培训。 本次活动将包括由Steven Lim和另两位中文母语的国际仲裁从业人员的经验分享，以及对事实证人进行交叉盘问的现场演示。
