    For Practising Barristers & Pupils


The Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) is the education and training division of  The Council of the Inns of Court.

The ICCA works with the profession to provide education, leadership, guidance, and coordination in relation to the pursuit of academic and professional excellence for the Bar.

We have three key areas of focus:

  1. We promote the highest standards of advocacy and professional ethics.
  2. We are a provider of high-quality educational materials for Bar students, pupils, barristers at all levels of seniority and sometimes for other legal professionals, nationally, pan-profession and on an international scale.
  3. We are an authorised Bar Course training provider.

To deliver these outputs, we work closely with barristers, the Judiciary and others drawn from the Inns, the Circuits, the Bar Council of England and Wales, Specialist Bar Associations, and other representative organisations.

The ICCA comprises a team of highly experienced legal academics, practitioners, educators, and operational staff.
