Faculty of Advocates Open Day - Monday 19 November 2012
News - date posted 14/09/12
The Faculty of Advocates next Open Day will take place on Monday 19 November
2012. There will be two slots available to those interested in taking part, one in the
morning, and one in the afternoon.
All students who are interested in attending should contact Catriona Thomson (details
undernoted) to secure a place at one of the sessions. Places are limited but if demand
is high, we may hold a further Open Day shortly thereafter.
It is intended that the experience will allow interested students to gain an insight into
life at the bar. The format of the day will be that groups of students will be allocated
to a member of Faculty who will explain a little about the working life of an
Advocate, give a tour of Parliament Hall and provide an overview of the history of the
Faculty itself. It is hoped that there will be a visit to the advocates clerking area, and
if possible the groups will be taken into a live courtroom in order to see a case. There
will be an opportunity for questions at the conclusion of the visit.
If anyone at your University would be interested in attending the Open Day then
please ask them to contact me in order that I can take a note of their details. My
contact details are:-
