Becoming a Barrister

How to Join the Inner Temple

You can join an Inn of Court if you are studying a qualifying law degree, or studied on or have been accepted onto a law conversion course, or have been exempted from or have successfully completed the academic stage of training.

Depending on the pathway to qualification you are following, you will have a specific point at which you need to join an Inn of Court.  This is a requirement of the Bar Standards Board.

Scholarships

In 2020, the Inn intends to make awards to a total value of £1,886,306. These funds are distributed between the Bar Course, GDL, Internships, Pupillage and Disability awards.

How to get involved

We have a diverse range of opportunities and schemes to support you in your journey to becoming a Barrister.
