Faculty announces open day for students and senior pupils
Potential advocates of tomorrow will have a chance to see life at the Scottish bar on Monday 6 May, when the Faculty of Advocates holds an open day for S5 and S6 school pupils and university students.
The aim 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, including the Court of Session and High Court of Justiciary, and seminars and workshops with practising advocates.
Gordon Jackson QC, Dean of Faculty, said: "Advocacy is an exciting and interesting profession, involving speaking up for others and defending their rights. The Faculty welcomes people from all backgrounds, and will be delighted to give our young guests on Open Day a glimpse of a career which could be for them."
Faculty expects demand for places to be high, and has set Wednesday 24 April as the deadline for applications.
