We Need More Women

Excuse us for putting it bluntly, but we need more diversity on our scholarships interview panels.

Diverse panels will lead to fairer decisions and a better confrontation of unconscious bias. We think the future of the Bar depends on it.

We want to inspire confidence in the profession by presenting our interviewees with a panel that reflects not only the full demographic of the Bar, but of the population; for that, we need you. For many people, a scholarship interview is the start of the journey into the profession, and The Inner Temple is committed to giving our candidates the strongest possible start.

We think the best people to spot a candidate's potential to practise at the Bar are practitioners, so we want all of our interviewers to be practising members of the Inn with at least four years' experience. If that's you, we'd love to add you to our next round of interviews.
