  • how the Family Court, Melbourne Magistrates’ Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia operate
  • the requirements of attending court as a witness who is subpoenaed
  • the requirements of attending court as a support person

  • how to analyse how reports are used in courts, and the issues that may arise in the process of cross-examination
  • how to analyse the impact of having an ongoing professional relationship with clients after the process of court preparation.
