Members of Essex Court Chambers Appointed to Board of Governors at College of Advocacy

15 June, 2016

Andrew Hochhauser QC and Paul Stanley QC have been appointed to the Board of Governors at the newly established Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA), along with former member of Essex Court Chambers, The Honourable Mrs Justice Andrews DBE.

ICCA will act of behalf of all four Inns of Court in the development of education and training targeted at the Bar and the wider profession, succeeding the long-established Advocacy Training Council. Its objective is to become a global centre of excellence for the teaching of advocacy and ethics and it will promote the reputation of the Bar of England and Wales.

The launch, on 13th June 2016, was attended by 130 members of the Bar and representatives of the Inns.

Andrew Hochhauser QC, who has been an advocacy trainer for twenty years, said, “It is a privilege to serve as a Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors of the ICCA, with particular responsibility for the specialist Bar Associations (‘SBAs). The College will build upon the highly successful programme of post-qualification training developed by the Advocacy Training Council. The ICCA will be able to make an even greater contribution to the continuing profession development of members of the Bar, forging closer links with the Circuits and the SBAs, giving them the opportunity to disseminate their materials to a much wider audience and raise their profile.”
