Alumna - Class of 2022

Sophie Cole

“When it came to choosing where to study the Bar Training Course, the ICCA was a brand-new option … [it gave] me the flexibility to live and work from home (saving a LOT of time and money on commuting) and that I could fit the study around my part-time work and volunteering commitments.”

Alexander Ryle

“I personally come from a non-traditional background … having worked in creative arts. I have very little experience with the law. But the ICCA is a place where the tutors will see potential in people even if they aren't from the most obvious places.”

“The reason I chose the ICCA was because I found the selection process challenging ... I felt that they cared more about setting me up to succeed as a barrister than getting me through a course ... I wanted to be part of this institution.”

Elena Margetts

“I had a part time tutoring job which meant that I could sort of fit in lessons as and when suited my clients ... I think we were all in agreement that the flexible working hours at the ICCA inherent within Part One benefited us all greatly.”

Jernene Poponne

“The emphasis on wellbeing at the bar was a huge factor for me. Just the knowledge that your course provider is aware that it's a stressful profession and that they have things in place to support you. And I can say I have felt supported since.”

Kyasat Nadeem

“Given the fact that the first part is so heavily online remote based, you get really clear communications from the staff and from the tutors. So even though you are not there in person, you do feel like you’re part of a collegiate environment.”

Mark Sheppard

“The ICCA is a good course and where it sits in terms of the cost to the student ... I wanted to go to a provider that really maximised my ability as an advocate and developed my ability within court and how to speak to clients.”
