Funded by the Inns of Court and designed by experienced practitioners and legal academics, the ICCA Bar Course is focussed on developing the highest calibre of new generation barristers.
The Vocational Stage of Bar training, formerly referred to as the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), was reformed in 2019 following the long Future Bar Training consultation. The following year, in 2020, the ICCA became an Authorised Education and Training Organisation (AETO) and launched the Bar Course, becoming the first provider to be approved by the BSB.
