    My dos is a huge advocate of Middle (he's a Master Bencher). Several of my supervisors/lecturers are members, and I enjoyed the dinner they held here a few months ago, but I haven't given it a lot of concerted thought.

    There's quite a Middle dominance in Cambridge - almost everyone that supervises Clare students is a Middle Templer.

    (I was thinking of one of the supervisors there. And a supervisor at Queens. And of course my Dos...)

    I've recently been for dinner at Lincoln's and I watched the final of the Inner Temple moot last night!

    I was most impressed by Lincoln's but that's probably because I was there longer and it was more of an event, they're both beautiful places though!

    Do you get supervised by my DoS? How are you finding it?

    Basically everyone who supervises Clare is a Middle Templer, such as Moules, Jones, Padfield, Bridge, Allan. I don't think it's a coincidence!

    I don't--although I have your equity supervisor for contract, and he's at Lincoln's (mutual fb friends, asked one how she knew you). :ninja: I do have Bridge for land. My other supervisor who's a barrister is also at Middle.

    Oh yes! I actually knew her because we did debating together in first year, but she'd forgotten me by the time we were supervised together in third year :lol: . Did she ask how you knew me?

    I think I said I post on a forum you also post on... Hope I haven't outed you as a TSR member in an embarrassing fashion. (My presence here is pretty readily ascertainable, but I realise not everyone is so open...)

    I've heard good things about both--my impression is they're much of a muchness.

    Haha, she hasn't brought it up with me (yet). I'm pretty easy to trace on here though - I do post quite prolifically. I take it you know all these people through mooting?

    Yeah, and some pro bono stuff.

    Edit: on that, we should probably stop thread-jacking about mutual acquaintances...

    Inner Templar here.

    First thing that attracted me to Inner was the accessibilty and volume of information contained on their website. Also, their student officers are very on the ball, and societies such as mooting, debating and drama are very active. I also loved the historical aspects of the Inn, and the presence of the templar church and so on.

    Add that to their career support mechanisms, such as mock interviews, pupillage interview advice documents, police shadowing, judge marshalling, the country lodges for weekend qualifying sessions (can't wait to go on one of these when I start the BPTC) the large gardens/ nice buildings and great location. Also, like Middle they interview all candidates for scholarships.

    Have a look at the Inner Temple prospectus available on their website; not only does it fully inform you about the Inn, it also gives you useful information about all stages of pursuing a career at the Bar.

    I sent off my application form for Inner Temple membership on Sunday (so guessing it would have been monday morning post) and was just wondering how long the Inns take to reply for membership?

    I know i'm impatient but i just want to know!!!

    Thanks
