Marshalling Scheme

The Marshalling Scheme will connect you with a member of the Inn who sits on the Bench.

This scheme offers you an excellent opportunity to gain an understanding of the role of the judiciary, court procedure and styles of advocacy.

Marshalling gave me a unique insight into the profession.
