Information for Applicants

Guidance for Applicants

The Guidance for Applicants includes guidance on completion of the application form and provides comprehensive information about all aspects of the process. The guidance for the 2019 Competition is available for download via the link to the right.

Advocacy includes both written and oral advocacy before the higher courts, arbitrations and tribunals and equivalent bodies. The advocacy may be in written or oral form but must relate to developing and advancing a client’s or employer’s case to secure the best outcome for the client in a dispute.  That outcome may, for example, be secured through arbitration, court determination or a settlement agreement. Oral advocacy includes advocacy in a court or tribunal, mediation, arbitration or in negotiation. There is no specific requirement as to the amount of written or in-court advocacy, so long as the there is sufficient evidence for the Panel to reach a conclusion as to excellence in respect of each aspect of advocacy.


We are always looking for ways to improve the process and experience for applicants. If you have any thoughts or suggestions please send them to:
