Part 1 Practice

Our approach to OSCE advocacy and presentation

While Advocacy and Presentation constitute one subpart of the OSCE assessment, they differ considerably. ‘Advocacy’ is applicable to civil and criminal litigation. In all other practice areas, it is known as ‘presentation’.

Presentation of your advice has no strict requirements and is generally the same throughout the world. Contrarily, advocacy has its own specifics or sometimes differs considerably from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

In the Theory Advocacy part, you may find guidance on preparation for advocacy in the form of a lecture, attachments and a sample advocacy speech. Included is an explanation of how to conduct different court applications in criminal and civil proceedings (which are different): e.g., how to address a judge; structure your delivery; and prepare the actual wording of a speech. I invite you to focus on advocacy tests in civil and criminal litigation. These two documents contain the list of legal tests.

In this regard, OSCEsmart offers you practical exercises that simulate exam conditions through online mock sessions with qualified solicitors.

Before OSCE advocacy/presentation 
We also strongly recommend that you watch advocacy lectures and other videos (practical examples of advocacy in civil and criminal litigation), and attachments to the left and in particular, to focus on the civil and criminal litigation tests. Practice shows that many candidates waste their first attempt to pass the mock, because, in fact, they do not know how to put a case across to the court. Following the aforementioned preparatory steps will ensure that you receive the greatest benefit from the practical mock session.
