The Faculty of Advocates Open Day will offer participants an insight into life at the bar. The day will begin with some information sessions from the Clerk of Faculty and the Director of the Faculty's Training and Education programme. Participants will also be given a tour of Parliament Hall and provided with an overview of the history of the Faculty itself, and there will be an opportunity to discuss the process of becoming an advocate and ask questions. Participants will meet some members of Faculty to find out first hand what a career at the bar is really like, and visit a courtroom in order to see a live case.
Please note that places are limited, and only those that have a confirmed place will be able to attend.

About the Faculty of Advocates
The Faculty of Advocates is the professional body to which all Advocates belong. Its history dates back to the sixteenth century.
The Faculty is responsible for: (i) prescribing the criteria and procedure for admission to the public office of Advocate and for removal from that office; and (ii) regulating the professional practice, conduct and discipline of Advocates. These responsibilities have been delegated to the Faculty by the Court of Session under the Legal Services (Scotland) Act 2010.
The Faculty maintains the Advocates' Library and an extensive collect of artworks and artefacts connected with Scotland's legal history.
The Faculty promotes and supports the administration of justice and the rule of law in Scotland.
