We have put together an array of materials that you might find of use:

What is Advocacy?
Advocacy is the means by which a barrister puts his or her client’s case to the court. It may be written or oral. Advocacy is a specialist skill, the quality and excellence of which distinguishes the Bar from other providers of legal services.

OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition
The pursuit of excellence in advocacy is central to the Inns of Court College of Advocacy’s functions, so we are delighted to be partnering with Oxford University Press for the prestigious OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition.

Promoting Reliability in Expert Evidence
We have started a programme of work to improve the reliability of expert evidence in court. This area forms a major building block in the development of the training of advocates.

Ethical Capacities
This research carried out by University College London, funded by the Legal Education Foundation and commissioned by the Inns of Court College of Advocacy examines the ethical knowledge and skills acquired by new advocates.

The Hampel Method
The Inns and Circuits have for very many years been involved in helping pupils and young advocates develop their oral advocacy skills. For the last 25 years training has followed a structured method of teaching known as “The Hampel Method”.

Raising The Bar
Raising the Bar is the ICCA report on the handling of vulnerable people in court. It is the first major research project in England and Wales to focus on how best to train advocates in the handling of vulnerable people in court.

An Insight Into Child Trafficking
The work of ECPAT and their training.
