University Advocacy Day

A unique opportunity for university students who are interested in a career at the bar, and are not yet members of an Inn of court.

We run two Advocacy Days in each academic year (usually in October and March). Places are limited for each event and by application.

The day will offer an opportunity to meet and listen to what leading barristers say are the key elements of good advocacy; to participate in a facilitated case analysis, ethics discussions and finally, under the guidance of advocacy trainers, to get on your feet and perform some advocacy.  The day will end with a reception hosted by judicial and barrister members of the Inn, all of whom sit and/or practise in all areas of law and at all levels.  

Applications for this event are currently closed. Please check here and on our social media channels for updates regarding future events.


  • Talks on advocacy, scholarships and the role of the Inns from barristers, including Mr Justice Mike Fordham, Master of Students 
  • Advocacy and ethics training in small groups from barristers
  • Reception in Hall hosted by members of the Inn
