Post-Qualification Training

The Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) strives for professional excellence for the Bar. We promote high standards of advocacy. We develop a wide range of materials to support practitioners in their practice, including Guides on Expert Evidence, Advocacy & the Vulnerable resources, and Pupillage Ethics materials. Explore and access the resources we have created, most of which are open access.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

All practising barristers need to be able to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attributes prescribed by the Bar Standards Board in the Professional Statement. We have produced a free CPD template and accompanying guidance to support practitioners to reflect upon and maintain their competence.
