MTYBA Goes On Circuit
On Monday 13th April, Karen Reid and Will Glover visited Middle Temple members in Cardiff at a Circuit Visit Conference. Master Treasurer, Stephen Hockman QC, addressed those in attendance on the issue of what the Inn can do to better its assistance and support for those members on circuit. Others raised issues around the problems faced by those recently called to the Bar with particular reference made to the financial plight of those at publicly funded sets and the difficulties faced by many in their pursuit of pupillage.
Karen Reid pointed to the series of events currently laid on by MTYBA in London to support its junior members and suggested that if there were eager contacts on circuit, and further resource from the Inn, MTYBA might be in a position to roll-out these events to benefit members based in other locations in England & Wales.
MTYBA Committee members will attend all of the circuit visits being conducted by Master Treasurer in the coming months. The next event will be held in Newcastle on 28th May.
