Assessing Credibility & Writing Reasons – $3750 + HST (with one Instructor)
A full-day, hands-on training session led by a member of the SML team.

The program employs a high quality video of an actual hearing where credibility is the primary issue. Part 1 of the course provides an overview of the key legal issues in assessing credibility, including the factors to consider, approaches to take, and recurring errors when assessing credibility. These principles are applied through observing actual video testimony. Part 2 of the course gives participants an opportunity to apply their knowledge in the form of mini-assignments in writing reasons. The worksheets provided contain the course content as well as short assignments related to credibility assessments and reasons writing.
