Joining the Inn

Students undertaking or intending to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in preparation for Call to the Bar of England and Wales will find all the information they need in the  Education section of the website.  The Students button on this menu gives some guidance.

Applications from barristers of other Inns wishing to join Lincoln's Inn are welcome, on payment of an ad eundem fee. For details, please go to the Barristers page.

Transferring Qualified Lawyers will find the appropriate information at the other links in this section. All applicants must satisfy the Bar Standards Board's (BSB's) Qualifications Committee that they are qualified to join an Inn and you are therefore advised to read the BSB's Notes on the Transferring Qualified Lawyers Panel before applying to join the Inn. 

The Registrar, June Gascoine, advises on admission for all Specially Qualified Applicants and you should contact her in the first instance as each case is slightly different. Telephone +44 (0)20 7405 1393; or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
