Process Serving - London

Date: Thursday 4th October, 2018 - Venue: , W2 1JA

ABI Academy Workshop

Our team of ABI approved trainers and industry experts offer you a varied programme of essential learning for professionals that aim to be successful professional investigators whether in the private or public sector.

The range of learning opportunities is refreshed regularly. We will not stand still.

In this workshop the ABI Academy will cover:

Process Serving

Some people will foolishly describe a Process Server as a glorified courier.

Anybody that enters the profession with that idea is heading for trouble.

Process Servers play a vital, yet often understated, role in the judicial system. They keep the wheels of justice turning by locating respondents and serving documents upon them. Easy?

There are several different types of documents to understand; several different procedures according to jurisdiction, types of proceedings, types of respondent, different courts, precedents and time scales.

The team will guide you through the differences in documents, point out the classic mistakes and defences and arm you with sufficient information to enable you to be an effective process server or perhaps confirm that you are one already?

At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have learnt about the legal requirements, effective service, the Data Protection Act and how it applies to process serving, Health and safety considerations, receiving instructions from clients and how to prepare affidavits, certificates and statements.

A copy of the new leading authority on the subject, The ABI Process Servers' Guide by Nicci Ashby, currently available at £47.00, will be provided free to attendees of the Process Serving workshop.

What to bring with you:

You should have with you some writing materials – pen and notepad.

You may need to go outdoors to carry out an exercise so suitable clothing should be brought for the weather conditions at the time.

For all IT related workshops, such as Open Source / Tracing and Tracker subjects, bring a laptop that can connect to the Internet wirelessly (a tablet may not be suitable).

If attending a Tracker workshop and you possess a GPS Tracking device then please bring it with you, fully charged along with its instruction manual if you have one. You will need its log-in details.

You may be provided with handouts during the workshop. A suitable folder to put them in would be useful.
