BARBRI Altior: Higher Rights of Audience (Civil or Criminal)

23rd March 2020 - Manchester

Obtain the skills and qualification necessary to represent clients in the civil or criminal higher courts in England and Wales by achieving the Higher Rights of Audience accreditation.

To exercise these rights, the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) specifies the completion of an advocacy assessment for either the civil or criminal courts. To gain rights in both courts, you will need to undertake an assessment for each pathway. Unless you have comprehensive experience in advocacy, we recommend you undertake at least one of either the written or practical training courses to give yourself the best possible chance of passing the assessment.

Our supplementary, beneficial four-day training course covers the various essential aspects of Crown Court and High Court preparation and advocacy, designed to guide candidates through the assessment process and to stand them in good stead for life as an advocate in the higher courts.

Key benefits include:

  • Offer a complete service to clients
  • Greater professional status and reputation
  • Higher earning potential
  • Enhanced advocacy, communication and case management skills
