Call to the Bar

Article Index

Applying for Call

In the weeks leading up to a Call Night closing date, students wishing to be called to the Bar are required to meet a Master of the Bench who can propose their call.

Once the student has met a Master of the Bench and had the Proposal for the Bar form signed, then the full application should be submitted to the Education & Training Department, with a CV and a cheque for the fee (£75) made payable to the Inner Temple. Online preferences for Call ceremonies should also be indicated via the Inner Temple Portal as detailed in the guidelines. Tickets to the ceremony will be purchased approximately two weeks prior to the event.

Those studying for the BPTC should receive information on how to apply for Call and an application form by February of the BPTC year. If you have not received an information pack by the middle of February, you can download forms from this website or contact the Education & Training Department.
