Our International Presence Overseas
In collaboration with the Inns of Court College of Advocacy, our members regularly participate in overseas advocacy training visits at the request of our members, Bar associations and other partner organisations in other jurisdictions.
The Inn welcomes requests from overseas jurisdictions for judicial training, delivered by our experienced current and retired judges and barristers and covering topics such as case management, judicial ethics, and handling vulnerable witnesses as well as some of the unique features of the legal system in England and Wales: how cases are managed; the relationship between judges and advocates; the relationship between the advocate and the court.
The time and expertise of our judges is given pro bono (free of charge), although costs of travel and accommodation are required to be covered by the host nation/organisation. All requests will be assessed in line with existing commitments and in consultation with the Judicial Office of England & Wales.
If you discuss an advocacy training, judicial training or membership visit by members of the Inner Temple to your country, please contact the Secretary to the Inn’s International Committee, Jennie Collis Price. As above, all requests will be assessed in line with existing commitments.
