Anniversary Events for Non-Members
In addition to anniversary events specifically for our members, we created an exciting programme of events and activities to celebrate our 600th anniversary, with non-members firmly in mind. Lincoln’s Inn has a rich cultural, social and legal history and we aim to reflect this through our programme.
