Specially Qualified Applicants

Transferring Solicitors, Qualified Lawyers, Legal Academics, etc.

If you have made a successful application to the Qualifications Committee of the Bar Standards Board for Call to the Bar of England and Wales, you may apply to join an Inn of Court.

Please ensure that you download the form attached to this page, as the application process is different from that of a student applicant intending on studying on the Bar Professional Training Course.

Please note: in 2019 (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 and complete the hard copy forms from the right hand side of this page.


Call to the Bar

Please note that Middle Temple arranges Call ceremonies on four dates every year. They are held on the second Thursday in March and October and the fourth Thursday in July and November.  

There is a separate application for Call, and should this be available when you are applying to join the Inn you can submit your Admission and Call paperwork at the same time.  The Call dates and the application form (when available) can be found here.
