If you would like a barrister to give a talk to your school students, please contact the Bar Council regarding their ‘Speak Up for Others’ Programme.

The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple is dedicated to ensuring that the profession of barristers is open to able candidates from any background.

In 2008, the Inner Temple launched a pioneering Schools Project to ensure that all students, regardless of their background, are aware of the opportunities available to them at the modern Bar, and to raise aspirations towards the professions more generally. Through workshops and activities, the programme challenges stereotypes about the profession, provides information about the legal system of England and Wales and promotes social mobility at the Bar.

Our work with schools is now delivered in partnership with the Sutton Trust's Pathways to Law programme, which enables Year 12 students to explore what entering the legal profession might look like.
