The Faculty of Advocates Open Day

ASPIRING Advocates will have a chance to see life at the Scottish Bar when the Faculty holds an Open Day for S5 and S6 school pupils and university students.

The day to note is Monday, 6 May, but with demand for places likely to be high, another important date is Wednesday, 24 April, the deadline for applications.

The aim of the Open Day is to give those interested in a career in advocacy an insight into the Bar and how to become an Advocate. There will be a tour of Parliament House, Edinburgh, home of Scotland’s Supreme Courts – the Court of Session and the High Court of Justiciary – and seminars and workshops with practising Advocates.
