Faculty of Advocates releases promotional film to encourage diversity, bust myths and attract new members to the Bar
The film documents the moment when Devils make the transition to Advocate at their calling ceremony. It will be distributed to law students, and also to qualified solicitors who might be considering a career switch to become an advocate.
Gordon Jackson, QC, Dean of Faculty, said: “We made the film because we want to bring the Faculty of Advocates to a new audience and inspire more legal talent to join the profession. Members of Faculty come from a broad cross section of society, and we’re keen to bust any myths people may have about advocates or access to the profession.
“We want to encourage everyone who is interested to come a step closer to us. The diversity amongst our members is a reflection of the country we live in today, and I am keen that we expand on that diversity every year.”
