This paper explores the design and delivery of an interdisciplinary approach to the delivery of court work skills to final year social work students. Using fictional case material, social workers complete a court report. The court reports are made available to trainee barristers who develop questions from the reports for cross examination. In sessions hosted by fully qualified barristers, social workers practice their oral skills in giving evidence to trainee barristers practising their skills in cross examination. Detailed formative feedback is provided to both trainee social workers and trainee barristers in small group, mock court settings.
