Please note that we are in the process of moving our records over to a new IT system.  In 2018 (date TBC) our Admission application form will go online and some processes may change slightly as a result.  There will be a period of transition during which we will continue to accept applications submitted in hard copy.  Further updates will be published on this page, but in the meantime if you would like to apply for membership please download the complete the hard copy forms.


Students may apply for admission to the Middle Temple either from the second year of their undergraduate law degree onwards, or once they have a confirmed place on the GDL / CPE (and have obtained a Certificate of Academic Standing from the Bar Standards Board).

Applications for admission must be submitted by 31 May of the calendar year in which you intend on starting the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).

Please note that all students must be admitted to an Inn before they can be registered on and attend a BPTC.

The application process is straightforward: the form must be completed, signed and returned to the Treasury Office along with all other required documentation. Please make sure that you complete all the forms correctly, ensuring that they are signed and dated.

Please note that the Admission Fee to join the Middle Temple is currently £105. The preferred payment method is by debit card or credit card.  DO NOT provide card details with your application – you will be contacted when we are ready to process your admission fee payment. [If you cannot pay by card, please contact Melissa Tucker on the details below to discuss alternative options].
