About us

Our Story

The Junior Chamber of Advocates (JCA) is a student organisation that was established under the auspices of the Chamber of Advocates and a University of Malta Senate recognized student organisation as of 2019. On the 1st of October 2013 the organisation was launched, it was publicly acknowledged by the President of the Chamber of Advocates, and endorsed by the Chief Justice on the inauguration of that Forensic year.

As a law student organisation, the JCA aims to Bridge the Gap between law students’ academic development and the practicality of the legal profession. It does so through the ‘Prattika-Link’ program,  which aims to link law students who wish to be exposed to the practice side of being a lawyer, with law firms and lawyers working in private practice, and also through the ‘Warrant Revision Sessions’, which are held to provide LLM students proper revision for the legal warrant examination.

A variety of events are hosted throughout the year, most notably Seminars that cover a variety of topics and legal fields, and Moot Courts that serve to simulate the experience of court proceedings. All of which are done to supplement the academic learning that is done in the LLB/LLM courses, thus giving students the opportunity to cover topics in more depth.

The JCA actively involves itself in the ongoing and topical issues in the legal field both locally and internationally through means of policy papers that are launched throughout the year. Our involvement in local and international affairs also extends itself to our charitable project, ‘JCA Gives’, that serves to support charities through organizing events and by means of providing food, clothes or monetary donations.

Assisting and providing support to the students within the Faculty of Laws is at JCA’s forefront, as is bringing students together. We offer a number of social events that provide networking opportunities for both current law students and prospective students at sixth form level. Above all, the JCA continuously seeks to provide support to law students in any way it can.
