The Inner Temple arranges events throughout the year to give prospective members a taste of how to become a barrister, life at the Inn and a general insight into the legal world.
The Inn organises four large annual university presentations in October, the largest of which is in London in Inner Temple Hall. This is an excellent opportunity to hear from a panel of speakers about life at the Bar as well as to interact informally with barristers and judges in the receptions that follow. Registration is required but is now closed for all events.

This is then followed by a drinks reception. The next event will be in June 2014.
