  • While still divided, the Scottish profession is far more unified than the English.

    Both branches in Scotland share the same one year course of post-LLB education - the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice. And all advocates have to serve their time as trainees solicitors in law firms, before they go to the bar.

    As a result, most are enrolled as solicitors before they go to the bar. And for an enrolled, practicing, solicitor to go to the bar only requires them to spend the same 9 month deviling (pupilage) as intrants direct from traineeship (assuming they have the requisite qualifications in Roman Law, and Conflict of Laws).
