In this session four of Middle Temple’s most experienced circuit practitioners will give an in-depth view into life on circuit, how you can begin to specialise and the pros and cons of specialisation. They will discuss the intricacies of specialising on circuit, together with your professional relationships on circuit, breadth of practice, how to get started on circuit and much more. This session is intended as a follow on from the previous “Life on Circuit” events held by Middle Temple and, as before, there will be plenty of time for questions. 

The four practitioners leading the session are:

  • Master Simon Medland QC

  • Master David Casement QC 

[Bookings will open at 18:00 on Friday 18 December]
