Members of the Guernsey Bar, who are called "Advocates of the Royal Court", are lawyers who advise clients on issues of local law and represent them in the courts of the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

Although Advocates originally qualify in another jurisdiction they must all undertake further legal studies and a local period of apprenticeship before they can practise in the Bailiwick.

Some Advocates have built up their expertise in a career based in Guernsey while others have gained experience in countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other offshore financial centres before coming here.    

A list of members of the Guernsey Bar is available by clicking on the link here  or a copy is available at the Greffe.
