University Advocacy Day Application Form

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 Day's in each academic year (usually in October and March). Both events will follow the same format. Places are limited for each event.

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 accredited advocacy trainers, to get on your feet and perform a bit of advocacy.  Saturday evening 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.
