Student Events and Information

The BSB has conditionally authorised the ICCA to deliver its new two-part Bar Course. The conditions of authorisation are that the ICCA’s application for registration with the Office for Students is approved and that thereafter a contract is entered with the BSB to deliver the authorised course. Subject to these final steps, the ICCA will take applications from December 2019 from students wishing to embark on the two-part course from September 2020.

Outreach and Webinars

The ICCA is the training arm of the Council of the Inns of Court (COIC) and provides high quality educational provision to aspiring Barristers not just through the ICCA Bar Course but to those currently studying at undergraduate level or the GDL.

As such, we provide assistance free of charge to students through university Bar/Law Societies and University Careers Services across the UK. Our outreach activities consist of presentations and workshops, but we are happy to develop bespoke presentations and workshops where there is demand.

The ICCA has attended many universities and law fairs across the UK throughout October, November and early December 2019, as well as conducting a series of webinars on Future Bar Training, the ICCA Bar Course and the Application Process.

You can find recordings of two of our webinars on “Is the ICCA Bar Course for You?” and “The Application Process” by clicking here.
