Wellbeing at Middle Temple

Middle just logoMiddle Temple has pushed Wellbeing at the Bar firmly to the top of the agenda. Coupled with the “Survive and Thrive” programme there have been lectures on:

  • Managing Stress chaired by Anna Ford with James Pereira QC being one of the speakers
  • Effective communication and Mindfulness chaired by the Lord Judge.

The Inn’s Hall Committee has piloted and developed a Mentoring scheme from junior tenant up to judicial appointment to assist with both career development and resilience.

The Inn has also facilitated Mindfulness and Yoga sessions  within the Library buildng in order to effect greater wellbeing.

We look forward to further assisting and developing the Wellbeing at the Bar agenda going forward.
