Advocates have to excel at learning so they can pick up subjects easily. Michael Mansfied QC has this ability to engage with the forensic sciences which helps him win Cases in Complex and Difficult Long Running Cases or VHCCs.
Advocates have to have the learning abilities to pick up subjects en spec and present it accurately,concisely and with great precision even as rookies where they are not obligated to be experts in a subject which is the purview of Expert Witnesses brought in to assist the Trial.
