Professional Development

At the heart of our CPD programming is 'learning-by-doing'. Our skill-based workshops offer you practical, hands-on learning in a safe and supportive environment with leading faculty who are trained by us. We ensure you are in good hands.


As the voice of advocates, The Advocates' Society takes a stand on law and policy by intervening in court cases that impact the profession, and by making submissions on legislation and policy. Learn more about our advocacy initiatives here.

Community & Events

Friends who argue. That’s who we are - and a collegial bar is a successful bar. Stay connected with your colleagues on both sides of the courtroom at our social events and discover the person behind your opponent.
