The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn is an unincorporated association of students, barristers and judges and is one of the four Inns of Court. It has been in continuous existence for over 600 years. The Inn is dedicated to the qualification, training and development of our members at all stages of their legal careers, in a collegiate and inclusive environment.
Who we are
Our primary aim is the education and training of our student members and practising members. However, as a multifaceted organisation we provide a wealth of services and events for members, tenants and the public.
History of the Inn
Lincoln’s Inn holds the oldest continuous records, which begin eighty years before those of the other Inns of Court. Key dates and events in our history are chronicled in the Lincoln’s Inn Timeline.
