University Presentations

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 for the upcoming academic year 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.

InnSight Days

We hold InnSight Days for students interested in learning more about a career at the Bar.

InnSight 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.

The next Innsight day will take place Wednesday 20 March 2024, registrations are open.

You can register here.

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 for success. Each event will be followed by a dinner where you will have the opportunity to talk with barristers and Benchers of the Inn.

Details of these events are sent directly to Universities. Due to limited places we do not allow individual students to sign up for theses events; you must sign up through your University.

Outreach Opportunites for Practicing Barristers

If you are a practicing Barrister (employed or self-employed) and would be interested in meeting students at university events, visits or Law Fairs, we may have opportunities for you. Quite often we require speakers to discuss their journey to the Bar at events at the Inn, as well as visiting universities around the country. The Inn also works with the Bar Council and other Inns at Law Fairs, and these are fantastic opportunities to share your knowledge with those considering a career at the Bar.
