The ICCA Bar Course

Outstanding Bar Training for Future Barristers

The ICCA Bar Course provides an innovative and highly successful approach to training the barristers of the future.

“The ICCA has the highest average passing rate across both litigation subjects and all sittings to date … The ICCA is, thus far, some way ahead of the other AETO centres in terms of cohort performance.” BSB Central Examinations Board Chair’s Report 7 November 2022 (para. 5.4)

As a not-for-profit Bar training provider, our first priority is to enable every ICCA student to achieve their ambition to become a barrister.

With 80% of our 2021 graduates having secured pupillage and with the highest BSB centralised assessment pass rates of all Bar training providers, the ICCA attracts students and career changers from over 50 universities in a diverse and supportive community. We look forward to welcoming you to the two-part ICCA Bar Course.
