ICCA exists to promote ‘Excellence in Advocacy’. This sums up the work of the whole of COIC. The Council of the Inns of Court is a Company Limited by Guarantee; Company No. 8804708.
We are also a charity (no 1155640) and we exist to advance education in the sound administration of the law, including by promoting high standards of advocacy and enforcing professional standards of conduct. COIC supports the work of the four Inns of Court who provide the majority of COIC’s funds.
