Courtroom advocacy – the art of persuasion needed by prosecutors – is not just about knowledge, it is also a skill. EUAM has conducted several workshops on advocacy for Ukrainian prosecutors, most recently in Lviv, where prosecutors worked on delivering case presentations to the court in a structured and logical way – the objective being to shape an argument that sticks and convinces.

The technique of storytelling is to a large extent based on the ancient fundamentals of rhetoric, which goes back to ancient Greece and Aristotle’s modes of persuasion: ethos, logos, and pathos.
