Eager to boost your reputation and help more clients? If you’re a solicitor, confident carrying out civil litigation, we’ll help you prepare for the qualification you need for higher court advocacy.
On day one, listen to lecturers on the theory, procedure and the assessment itself. On days two and three, join us for practical advocacy training that covers skeleton drafting, civil trial strategy plans, making interim applications and witness handling.
We’ll set practice briefs and you’ll receive feedback from our experts including Robin Sellers. You’ll also sit a mock written paper to evaluate your level of knowledge, so you can identify any gaps you need to fill.
Who is it for?
You’ll feel you have adequate advocacy experience and be eager to represent clients in the higher courts. We offer two routes (civil and criminal), so you can pick the one that best fits your area of specialism.
By passing the exam, you’ll be able to appear as a solicitor advocate in the High Court. And, through the training we offer, you’ll also strengthen your knowledge of evidence and ethics, and improve your confidence as an advocate.
Because of our international reputation, solicitors join us from all over the world. You’ll train alongside professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds, from professionals working at high-street firms to international arbitration lawyers.
