Excellence in Advocacy

International Committee

The International Committee brings together senior advocacy trainers from the Inns and Circuits, together with the President of the International Advocacy Training Council (IATC), to consider how best to respond to requests for advocacy training overseas. International training takes a 'seed corn' approach, helping overseas jurisdictions develop their own advocacy teacher training programmes.

Its role includes: prioritising requests; co-ordinating responses and drawing together appropriate teams of trainers; identifying and creating training materials; and seeking additional sources of funding.

Recent overseas training visits have included courses delivered in; Dubai, Ireland, Malaysia, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Vienna and Zimbabwe.
