A joint venture between Inner and Middle Temple is set to take place with the launch of the Temple Employed Bar Forum.
The aim of this initiative is to provide an opportunity for established and aspiring barristers to network whilst hearing from a wide range of speakers.
The title of the Forum is The Employed Bar: Opportunities for Established and Aspiring Practitioners.
It is aimed at three groups:
1. Employed barristers who would like the chance to meet and network with their colleagues both at the employed and self-employed Bar;
2. Students, BPTC graduates and pupils who would like to widen their knowledge of potential opportunities at the Employed Bar by learning from the experience of others;
3. Self-employed barristers interested in meeting and learning more about the work of their colleagues at the Employed Bar and developing some professional contacts.
The evening will kick-off with a keynote speech from Robert Webb QC, followed by a panel discussion chaired by Master Vivian Robinson QC, Inner Temple's Master of the Employed Bar.
After questions from the floor, there will be drinks with plenty of opportunities for networking.
