Event Details

The Middle Temple Hall Committee represents the barrister members of the Inn and acts as the members’ advocate.

They meet regularly to discuss issues of importance and interest to members. Those elected by you to the Hall Committee in turn sit on the Bench Committees and Sub-Committees.

The Committee represents Member views and interests on matters ranging from the future of the Bar, to the organisation of property management, investment, education, catering and social events. They also hold regular events such as the Annual Dinner and the Ceilidh. 

Come along on Thursday 22 July and find out more about who the Hall Committee are and what they do!

This event is also an opportunity to view our beautiful new Garden Room, a perfect place to work and meet, along with indoor and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the garden views.
