Giffin Koerth Participates in Advocate’s Society Civil Litigation Skills Program in Calgary, Alberta

On November 3rd, Giffin Koerth’s Road Safety Principal, Russell Brownlee, and Collision Reconstruction Senior Associate Dave Porter participated in the Advocates’ Society Civil Litigation Skills Program in Calgary, Alberta. The event brought together lawyers to further develop their skills in Examining and Cross-Examining Experts.

The program offered lawyers the chance to practice examining expert witnesses, learn about preparing for witness examination and learn from the experts about their experience in court. Although the full day program was geared towards assisting lawyers in trial, Dave and Russell were excited for the opportunity to participate in the educational sessions and provide their input.

“The Advocates’ Society was established in 1963 to ensure the presence of a courageous and independent bar and the maintenance of the role of the advocate in the administration of justice.” (The Advocates’ Society) It is through programs such as this that they are able to do just that.
