Given the criticism I gave them last year over the way their change in editorship was handled, it’s time I gave the Bar News some credit before its current issue disappears from the website and becomes difficult to find.

In particular, the article by George Golvan QC is a gem. His message – that trials are won by the most thoroughly prepared advocate – may not be new but seems to be something that needs to be re-discovered over and over.

The book that Golvan references, the Advocacy Manual by Hampel, is available from the LIV.
