Represent Yourself In Court - How To Prepare And Try A Winning Case. This is an ebook(American) but very relevant and helped me a lot. Our justice systems are similar enough to make it very useful. The best advice I can give anyone to avoid ticking of the judge is
1) Come prepared
2) Don't interrupt and speak only when the judge directs you to speak
3) Have all your documents organized so you can find anything in seconds
4) Speak calmly at all times and only to the judge never directly to your opponent
5) Only talk about facts. It's all the judge cares about
6) Credibility is key
7) Don't worry if the judge yells at you. They yell at the lawyers too. Brush it off
