Certificate in Commercial Property LitigationSpeaker: Mark Shelton

This two day course is aimed at lawyers who are looking to build a practice in commercial property litigation, and gives a broad grounding in core practice areas, while taking a firmly practical approach.

The course begins with an in-depth review of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, which is fundamental to the management of commercial property, and from which much of the bread and butter work of the commercial property litigator flows. The 1954 Act is a highly technical piece of legislation, with many traps for the unwary.

It goes on to consider law and procedure where the landlord opposes lease renewal on each of the statutory grounds and will examine the other common areas in which disputes arise – dilapidations, service charges, enforcement of leasehold covenants following assignments, and break options.

The course will also support delegates in dealing with contentious applications for landlord’s consent to dealings with the lease, practicalities of trespasser eviction, and the remedy of forfeiture of leases.

• The basic concepts of the 1954 Act: What is a ‘business lease’? Who is the ‘competent landlord’?

• Procedure, and renewal terms• Tactics and requirements for opposing

lease renewal• Service charges – common causes of

dispute, the Code and s 20 consultation in mixed use developments

• Enforcement of leasehold covenants – the pre-1996 and post-1995 regimes

• Break options – drafting and serving notices, payment of rent and interest, conditional clauses

• The interpretation of repairing covenants, and the conduct and settlement of dilapidations claims

• Obtaining landlord’s consents: formalities and pitfalls

• Trespassers – efficient conduct of court procedures, and adding value with practical measures for eviction and preventing recurrent occupations

• Avoiding inadvertent waiver of the right to forfeit, and a guide through the variety of relief jurisdictions

Interviewing Witnesses: How to Unlock Their MemoriesSpeaker: Dave Barney

The SRA Competence Statement makes it clear that solicitors must be capable of “obtaining relevant information through effective use of questioning and active listening”. This is sometimes easier said than done when the events in question took place several years before.

This course teaches you how to use techniques based on cognitive interviewing that really work in getting information out of witnesses.

It uses a series of memory retrieval techniques to increase the amount of information that can be obtained from a witness or client.

Cognitive interviewing is successfully used in some of the largest UK law firms and will increase the completeness and accuracy of what your witnesses can remember, helping them to remember clearly things that happened many months, or even many years ago. It will also enable you to:

• Assess litigation risks and make decisions about a case

• Prepare cases and take statements based on the full facts

• Obtain up to 40% more relevant information• Obtain uncontaminated evidence from witnesses• Obtain more facts and details from witnesses first

time, reducing the need for costly re-interviews

Litigator’s Guide to the Technology and Construction Court 2017 Speaker: Darryl Royce This webinar will address the special role of the TCC in the civil justice system, including the types of claims that should be begun there at both High Court and County Court level and the division of work between the two. It will cover the particular demands of the Construction & Engineering Disputes Pre-action Protocol as amended in November 2016, the TCC approach to costs budgets, CMCs and PTRs, as well as pleadings, disclosure and procedure at trial. The procedures involved in adjudication enforcement proceedings will be given specific attention.

• What work does the TCC deal with?• How does the TCC deal with that work?• What are the potential pitfalls in the TCC for

the unwary?

The Online Solutions Court: What you need to know Speaker: Andrew McLoughlin We have been hearing about an online court for some time but what is the latest state of play? Are you worried about how online dispute resolution will impact on your litigation practice? Are you keen to understand which areas of work are included in this newly envisaged court?

This one-hour webinar will cover the latest news regarding the development of this new Court, how it will deal with litigants (both represented and in person) and what’s involved in recovering legal costs. It will also suggest how the creation of new business models can help and provide ideas for maintaining profitability and capturing market share.

Privilege: Is Protection being eroded by the Courts? Speaker: Ian Gascoigne Legal professional privilege is a lawyer’s unique protective selling point for his advice and an important protection for clients. The concepts behind legal professional privilege are familiar and easy to state. But, in practice, the dividing lines are increasingly difficult to draw. Four cases decided in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have created problems for lawyers in advising clients effectively and defending their interests against prospective claims.

CLT offers an extensive library of webinars covering the latest hot topics and industry developments. Lasting one hour and costing

Working With Expert Witnesses in 2017 Speaker: Ian Gascoigne Since the Jackson reforms were implemented almost four years ago, the civil courts have had greater control over the provision and presentation of expert evidence in civil litigation.

This webinar will look at several of the cases and address the challenges for solicitors in working with expert witnesses in 2017.

Claims Against Solicitors in Professional Negligence - An Update Speaker: Andrew McLoughlin The webinar provides a comprehensive review of this area of law by examining recent cases. It will consider the ramifications for practitioners of several Court of Appeal decisions and will draw out points that will assist negotiations and settlement tips.
