Academic Fellows

The Academic Fellowship Scheme aims to recognise the outstanding contribution of legal teaching and research of early to mid-career academics to the Bar of England and Wales. It also aims to support their research and to build stronger ties between barristers and legal academia.

 

The Inn works closely with universities across the UK to provide information on the profession to aspiring entrants and those who teach them. Last year, the Inner Temple reached over 1600 university students and hundreds of legal academics and tutors.

For more information on the Academic Fellows Scheme and other activities for legal academics, please contact Struan Campbell.

 

Criteria:

Academic Fellows may come from any academic discipline but their work must contribute to the study of law, and their teaching to the education of future legal practitioners.

We are looking for people who match the following criteria:

  • Active teaching role with high level of interaction with students
  • Legal research area of interest to members of the Inn, in particular student members for Qualifying Sessions
  • Willingness to contribute positively to the Inn; evidence of commitment to strengthening the legal professions
  • Ability to represent the Bar and Inn positively to a diverse audience with the skills and capabilities to succeed at the Bar
  • High-calibre research with practical impact; Inn’s ability to help encourage the research area(s)

We aim to ensure a balance of institutions and legal research areas.

Applications are now closed for 2018 fellowships.

The next round of fellowships will open in June 2019.
