Public Inquiries and Appeals are distinct in their process, approach and conduct and officers need to adopt a different approach to giving evidence in such environments to that used when giving evidence in criminal proceedings. This course look at that way in which Tribunals and Public Inquiries are constituted, the pre-requirements for giving evidence, how evidence should be prepared and what to expect.

We consider the difference between adversarial and inquisitorial justice, and how the way in which evidence is produced and given differs, the roles of all of the different parties, including third parties and how local authorities can maximise their influence and therefore chances of success. This course is suitable for any officer who may have to appear in any form of tribunal, or Public Inquiry, statutory or non-statutory.
