The Course Format and Applications:

The aim of this course is to encourage and develop the highest standards of advocacy amongst practitioners in England & Wales. The course is the most demanding and intensive of any advocacy course in the UK.

To qualify for the course, you must join the Circuit and be a practising member of the Bar, over three years’ call at the time of attending the course.

The course is massively subsidised by the Circuit and the cost to each participating Circuit member is £1,500.00 / £2,500.00 / £3,000.00 + VAT (Crime / Civil / Overseas respectively).

The Circuit subsidy represents at least the participant cost all over again: i.e. the Circuit is making a large investment in its Practitioners.

Previous courses have been accredited by the Bar Standards Board (includes 33 CPD hours, 9 Advocacy hours).

The course takes place at Keble College, Oxford and participants must attend each day of the course.
