About the AAI

“There is no one correct
way of performing
advocacy, but there are
more effective ways”

Professor George Hampel AM QC

The 2nd edition of the AAI Advocacy Manual is now available.  This second edition is improved by a number of additions.
Developing a case theory is a challenging but critical analytical task for every advocate in every case. The chapter on Preparation has some helpful suggested steps in developing the case theory. There is a new chapter on Expert Evidence which provides a useful conceptual and practical approach to this more difficult part of the advocates work. It provides a guide to conferencing with experts and dealing with their evidence in court. There is a much enlarged chapter on Evidence in Action with special emphasis on the Uniform Evidence Act. There is a new chapter on Appellate Advocacy which has some important practical guidance and builds on the chapter on Argument.
