Exam Invigilators required for inclusion on King’s Inns Panel of Invigilators

King’s Inns invites expressions of interest for exam invigilators for inclusion on its Panel of Invigilators commencing in 2023.

King’s Inns intends to put in place a panel of invigilators for an initial period of three years, subject to an extension of up to one further year.

King’s Inns exams for the degree of Barrister–at–Law, Diploma in Legal Studies and Entrance Exam for the degree of Barrister–at–Law course are held in–person at King’s Inns. In written exams, candidates use their own laptops with an installed lockdown browser to submit responses online. Invigilators assist in the effective delivery of these exams. There are also oral, recorded assessments in Advocacy and Consultation as part of the degree of Barrister–at–Law exams.

To support students undertaking examinations throughout the year, a number of Invigilators will supervise examinations at any given time. Exams take place on weekdays and weekends.

A broader explanation of the invigilation panel and what is required from invigilators can be found in the below document titled “Information for Applicants”.
