Strathclyde students get glimpse of life at the Bar
Students at Strathclyde University were given a glimpse of life at the Bar when a Faculty of Advocates roadshow arrived on campus.
As well as hearing from Dean of Faculty, Gordon Jackson QC, and viewing the Faculty’s promotional film, the students witnessed advocacy in action when QCs staged a short legal debate before a Court of Session judge. The students then had the opportunity to find out more about life at the Bar in a lively Q&A session.
The event, Becoming an Advocate in Scotland, was hosted by Strathclyde University and was described by one student as “fantastic”.
Kirsty Hood QC, clerk of Faculty, said: “We were delighted to meet with the students and share our experiences of life at the Bar. We hope the students will have learned what a rewarding career the Bar is – and will have been inspired to think seriously about becoming an advocate.
“The Faculty looks forward to repeating this event at other universities in the future.”
