Dear Distinguished Colleagues,

    I am pleased to report that we have now concluded the 12-Day Criminal Litigation Training Series which we commenced a couple of weeks ago. The series was well attended and at its peak had 10,128 participants – the highest number ever in continuing legal education within the NBA.  For us at the NBA-ICLE, this is heartwarming because it is not only a vote of confidence in our activities, but is also a demonstration of the level of enthusiasm and interest of our members in programmes of this nature which add value to their daily practices. 

    We are grateful to all the participants and facilitators for their time and dedication, and to the President of the NBA for the support afforded the Institute throughout the series.

    For the benefit of everyone, please find attached the following course materials from our facilitators:
