Advocacy course

The IRSV conducts a range of activities focusing upon advocacy and dispute resolution - IRSV/FWC Advocacy training course, regular discussion group meetings on workplace dispute resolution issues, and occasional seminars.

The 2016 IRSV Advocacy Course

The Advocacy Training Program is a skill-based program directed at advocates appearing before the Fair Work Commission. Whilst the program will be of particular benefit to students and new advocates, it will also be of interest to those more experienced advocates wishing to review their practical skills and knowledge of advocacy.

The program is conducted by a range of experienced advocates and members of the FWC who will provide instruction, commentary and feedback to course participants.

The IRSV will be conducting the advocacy course again in 2016.  Dates have been announced and places are limited. Please click here for more information.

As in previous years the course will consist of:

  • 2 weeknight forum sessions;
  • 2 weekend practical advocacy "Moot Court" sessions; and
  • a weeknight "wrap up" session held at the Commission.
