The Advocacy day is a unique opportunity
for university students who are interested in a career at the bar are not yet members of an Inn of court.
We are running two Advocacy Day's in the academic year 2018 to 2019. 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.
Where: Gray's Inn When: Saturday 20 October 2018 or Saturday 30 March 2019 Time: 1pm to 7.30pm Cost: Free with subsidised travel Programme
Talk on advocacy (Michael Fordham QC - Master of Students)
Talk on scholarships (Nathalie Lieven QC - Chair of the Scholarships Committee)
Talk on the role of the Inns (Director of Education - Quinn Clarke)
Advocacy and ethics training in small groups from barristers
Reception in Hall hosted by
The Treasurer, The Honourable Sir David Foskett
