Judges regularly complain that witness statements are inadequate and do not contain sufficient information, alternatively that they contain much information that is irrelevant and the witness is unable to give.

This webinar looks in detail at the rules and practice directions relating to witness statements and:

  • The mandatory requirements for witness statements and the consequences of non-compliance
  • Protecting the witness from the lawyer
  • Protecting the lawyer from the witness
  • Witness statements and proportionality
  • Where lawyers go badly wrong with witness evidence
  • Explaining the significance of the statement of truth
  • A checklist for taking a statement
