The outgoing 2017 Committee would like to thank all those who participated in the election, either by standing in the election or exercising their voting rights.

The incoming 2018 Committee would like to thank the outgoing committee for all their hard work throughout 2017. Particular thanks go to the outgoing President Will Glover who has provided superb leadership over the past twelve months. Will has been heavily involved with MTYBA for several years and we are delighted that he will be taking up an ex-officio role on the Committee as past-President and pass on his substantial expertise. We also wish to acknowledge his predecessor Karen Reid, who stands down from the committee having served as past-President in 2017. Karen has been a brilliant servant of MTYBA over many years including two as President.

The 2018 Committee look forward to another year of working hard to represent the interests of Middle Temple’s young barrister members. Stay tuned for news of upcoming events and opportunities in the New Year.
