Join us for Outstanding Advocacy & Collegiality with The Honourable Society of Middle Temple this Fall


From September 18 to 21, 2019 The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple from England will be coming to Canada for their 2019 Amity Tour and The Advocates' Society is proud to partner with them in presenting some exceptional learning and collegial events.

This is an outstanding opportunity for Canadian advocates to meet, hear and learn from a distinguished group of the UK's top barristers and jurists, who will participate alongside some of Canada's leading advocates in moot and advocacy sessions that will showcase unique skills and approaches to advocacy from both sides of the Atlantic.
