Students enjoy “fantastic” Faculty insight
STUDENTS at Strathclyde University were given a glimpse of life at the Bar when a Faculty roadshow arrived on campus.
As well as hearing from Dean of Faculty, Gordon Jackson, QC, and viewing the Faculty's promotional film http://bit.ly/2BO3Z9Y, the students witnessed advocacy in action when QCs staged a short legal debate before a Court of Session judge. The students then had the opportunity to find out more about life at the Bar in a lively Q+A session.
The event, Becoming an Advocate in Scotland, was hosted by Strathclyde University and was described by one student as “fantastic”.
Kirsty Hood, QC, Clerk of Faculty, said: "We were delighted to meet with the students and share our experiences of life at the Bar. We hope the students will have learned what a rewarding career the Bar is – and will have been inspired to think seriously about becoming an advocate.
“The Faculty looks forward to repeating this event at other universities in the future.”
