Why don't you visit your local court and ask if you can sit in on one or two cases being heard. That will give you some idea of how it works

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Let me make no bones about it, it's difficult. Your strength, if you can call it that, is your LIP "ignorance" . Use it to great effect if you do not understand anything.


I always used this article to prepare myself for court:


In any litigation you need to know a few key things, principally the applicable law and therefore what you have to prove to win/what the other side can prove to stop you winning. In legal academic circles this is described as your case theory: a brief statement of what your case is and why you should win.


Put it another way. You need to know and be able to show:


(a) what the parties' legal obligations are to each other (be it contract, tort, matrimonial, criminal law etc) [the law]

(b) what actually happened [the facts]

© how (b) relates to (a)

(d) if © is a breach of obligation, what that means in terms of the consequences: what remedy do you ask the Court to order?


Develop your case theory using the above steps. Test everything against that: does it help your case or is it a problem?


Once you have a clear idea of these things, you can look at every document, statement, whatever critically and put them into one of 3 categories (with reasons):


1. Good (for your case)

2. Bad

3. Irrelevant


Not every litigation lawyer thinks with this clarity. Believe me, it helps! With this approach I can form my view of the opponent's lawyer.


Oh yes, one more thing. It's all very well to be clear why you should win, but keep asking yourself why you will lose. In every case there are reasons why you may lose. If you can identify those areas of weakness you can adjust your strategy to address them.
