The ATC provides leadership, guidance and co-ordination in relation to the pursuit of excellence in advocacy. It enjoys a growing international reputation for its activities both at home and abroad in supporting the advocacy training of the Inns and Circuits and providing training overseas. The ATC has played a leading role in the development of ‘The Advocate’s Gateway’ (TAG) which provides ground breaking guidance on the treatment of vulnerable witnesses in court.
