We encourage Members, where possible, to volunteer some of their time and expertise to help others, whether by providing their services for Pro Bono work or getting involved and contributing towards the life of the Inn. Examples may include becoming an Advocacy Trainer, joining the Inn’s Mentoring Scheme, acting as a Scholarship interviewer, or simply attending Inn events on Circuit or in Hall.
Members may also find it a useful way to develop skills and practice in an area of law that is not one’s usual focus. Most find it an extremely rewarding experience and it can provide a sense of self-fulfilment and make people feel re-energized and recommitted to the law.
There are many ways in which you can get involved with the life of the Inn. Examples include becoming an Advocacy Trainer, joining the Inn’s Mentoring Scheme, acting as a Scholarship interviewer, or simply attending Inn events on Circuit or in Hall.
The Inn’s Volunteering Guide has been compiled to enable members to identify ways in which they can contribute towards the life of the Inn, or simply to re-engage after Call to the Bar. It sets out the many ways in which members can volunteer at the Inn as well as listing the contact information for the appropriate staff members who will be able to assist you should you wish to volunteer your services, or answer any queries you may have. The Inn welcomes all volunteers so please do not be shy about getting in touch.
