The Inn is keen to help those considering a career at the Bar by providing opportunities to learn more about the profession, training for the Bar and how to fund their studies.
We hold Open Days for prospective BPTC and GDL/CPE students interested to learn more about a career at the Bar.
Open Days include a presentation about the Inn and a talk from a barrister, or recent student. Individual students are welcome to bring a guest with them, or you can attend as part of group from your institution. The next Open Day dates are to be confirmed.
University Information Afternoon and Dinner
We host Information Afternoon and Dinners for prospective students between February and April each academic year. Invitations will be sent to institutions in advance. These afternoons provide the opportunity to attend a series of short talks on varying aspects of a career at the Bar, including the Self-Employed Bar, the Employed Bar, Training for the Bar, and Top Tips to Succeed. Each event will be followed by a dinner where you will have the opportunity to discuss the Bar with barristers and benchers of the Inn.
Lincoln’s Inn visits a number of universities each year to give a presentation on how to finance and succeed in a career at the Bar.
These events are open to all students at the particular institution and where possible we will open them up to students at other local institutions. More information on locations and dates will be released in due course.
The Inn can arrange for barristers or a member of staff to visit you at your university to talk about the role of the Inns. Please contact us to discuss your plans.
The Bar Council, the Inns of Court and COMBAR (the Commercial Bar Association) will attend various university law fairs during the Michaelmas Term. If you would like more information about the fairs and other careers events arranged by the Bar Council, please visit their website or contact Careers@BarCouncil.org.uk.
