ICCA Conference – 15 October 2022


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

As a not-for-profit organisation, we provide education, leadership, guidance and coordination in relation to the pursuit of academic and professional excellence for the Bar.

The ICCA has three key areas of focus:

  1. We promote the highest standards of advocacy and professional ethics;
  2. We provide high-quality education and training materials to practising barristers at all levels of seniority, to pupils and to other legal professionals, nationally, pan-profession and on an international scale;
  3. We are an Authorised Education and Training Organisation (AETO), delivering the ICCA Bar Course, a Bar Vocational Training Course funded by the Inns of Court.

To achieve our objectives, the ICCA engages with barristers, the Judiciary and others drawn from the Inns, the Circuits, the Bar Council, Specialist Bar Associations, and other representative organisations.

The ICCA is comprised of experienced barristers and academics, together with a professional operations team, based at 33 Chancery Lane, London.
