Excellence in Advocacy

About ICCA

The Inns of Court College of Advocacy (formerly the ATC) was established by The Council of the Inns of Court (COIC). Follow this link to download ICCA's Scheme of Delegation

The new College will provide leadership, expertise and guidance in the pursuit of excellence in advocacy and professional ethics and will build on the success of the Advocacy Training Council (ATC) which is internationally recognised for its development of education and training for the Bar and the wider profession.

The ATC (now ICCA) has played a leading role in the development of "The Advocate’s Gateway" (TAG), this resource provides ground breaking guidance on the treatment of vulnerable witnesses in court.

The College's ambition is to create a global centre of excellence in the study and practice of advocacy. It will provide a new and unique service for the domestic and global profession, providing online education and training resources from early study to established specialist practice. The profession will regard ICCA as the resource of choice for education and training materials of the highest quality. The materials will be delivered online and through the Inns and Circuits.
