Training & Events
SAHCA's training is accredited by the SRA and focuses on advocacy in the Higher Courts. Following the replacement of 16 hours CPD per year with 'continuing competence' HCAs are no longer required to undertake 5 hours of CPD training on "advocacy issues" each year. Instead solicitor advocates must reflect on their advocacy practise and seek the necessary training to maintain competence and develop. SAHCA training offers a variety of training methods and opportunities, from distance learning to attending practical high quality training at beginner and intermediate levels, with great opportunities for judicial assessment and individual feedback from solicitor advocate trainers. Our networking and training events provide fantastic opportunities to meet with fellow solicitor advocates and senior members of the judiciary.
