Learning Development


FADE IN:

INT. STUDY - DAY

PETER in an unbuttoned white shirt, types on the computer as TV anchors break news.

PETER (V.O.)

Again, I've learnt a lot

today.

FLASHBACK

INT. OFFICE SPACE - DAY

Open standing meeting. Peter (50s) talks to his STAFF and INTERNS.

PETER

I believe in the "70/20/10"

Rule in learning development

Perplexed eyes.

PETER (Cont'd)

We learn 10% in school, 20%

from peers and 70% on the

job. That's what I've found

having formulated intellectual

property policy for decades.

Pausing.

PETER (Cont'd)

You'll feel it particularly

when you're as old as me.

EXT. CHALET IN DUBROVNIK - DAY

Sunny sky and blue sea. Peter (63) approaches his WIFE.

PETER I've just got mail that I've

succeeded in getting my

private practice certificate!

EXT. FOSHAN - DAY

Peter tours with some LADIES and GENTLEMEN.

PETER

(To Ladies#1 & 2)

I'm now in private practice.

LADY#1

I know.

PETER

But I haven't appeared in

court for 30 years.

LADY#2

You've been trained!

PETER

That's true. I'm not worried

about the law. But I've to

update myself on practice

and procedures.

LADY#2

That's easy. Just go to the

courts and observe how

others do it!

PETER

Yes, I have. But I believe

I'd learn more on the job

as I'd know how ill-structured

was the original problem.

INT. LAW LIBRARY - NIGHT

Peter studies piles of thick books.

PETER (V.O.)

So this is the Alternative

Procedure in the books.

When I heard about it

in Law School in the 1980s,

it was a new practice. Now,

even the UK has adopted

it.

INT. COURT - DAY

At a bar table, Peter sits on the right and another LAWYER (60s) on the left. The lawyer passes a sheet of paper to the clerk and another sheet to Peter before he addresses the Bench.

LAWYER

Here's the objections on

admissibility to confession

sought to be tendered by

the prosecution.

WITNESS#1 testifies and is cross-examined by the lawyer. And we hear: "There's a prima facie case."

WITNESS#2 testifies and is cross-examined by Peter. After hearing the lawyer's submission, the court adjourns.

PETER (V.O.)

Having faced the challenge during the performance of

the job, I've refreshed myself

about the specific skills.

END FLASHBACK

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I was so glad that the court

ruled that the confession

was accurate and voluntary.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

It's proof that I've got

the law and the practice

and procedures right.

I now have newer and

richer hands-on experience

of the Alternative

Procedure.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.)(Cont'd)

I learn 10% from books,

20% from peers and 70%

from scenarios of cases.

I've developed my

competence in the field!

Looking at his image in a wall mirror, Peter smiles as if he has tasted the flavour of success.

FADE OUT. The End
