Pupils' Advocacy & Practice Management Course | 3 - 14 February 2020 | 2 Week Course

Monday 3rd of February 2020 09:00

Pupils are required by the Bar Standards Board to attend a minimum of 12 hours of practical advocacy teaching and six hours of practice management. The Middle Temple courses combine both these areas in a single course.

These are full-time courses, running from Monday to Friday during two consecutive weeks. They offer advocacy training workshops designed to meet situations in which young barristers may find themselves. Lectures cover themes ranging from general advocacy to practical advice from specialists and experts, and the workshops will be led by experienced practitioners. Court visits provide an opportunity for exercises in both civil applications and criminal work before Judges.

Although we strongly recommend our flagship two-week course, we offer three pared down courses covering the minimum requirement for those who are unable to attend our full programme.

Courses are open to members of all four Inns at no cost (with priority given to Middle Temple members) and are held in the Ashley Building on Middle Temple Lane. Pupils on Circuit may find it more convenient to attend the Circuit's course but if they wish, we would be delighted to accommodate them on the Middle Temple course.
