The Inn is very keen to help those seeking to establish a career at the Bar if it is right for them. The Inn also wishes to assist those who advise students making this important decision.
If you are looking for more information on our outreach events and visiting the Inn please see our Outreach page.
University Information Afternoons and Dinners
Lincoln's Inn offers a series of events between February and April each year for university students who are interested in pursuing a career at the Bar; download the draft programme (pdf). Students are invited to visit the Inn, hear from practising barristers and dine in the Hall. Unfortunately, during the development works at Lincoln's Inn, we are unable to offer as many places at these events as we usually would. Invitations have been sent to universities offering a qualifying law degree.
Those attending these events should note that the dress code is dark coloured suits for gentlemen (not Black Tie). Ladies should dress in a dark suit or appropriate formal dress with shoulders covered. Genuine dark coloured ethnic dress is welcomed.
Information regarding these events will be sent out to the relevant university contacts in December.
Sponsorship and Funding for Bar and Law Societies
Lincoln's Inn is now accepting applications for sponsorship from student societies. You must complete an application form informing us why you are applying and how you intend to use the funding. We will be offering amounts of up to £250, and student societies should note that they will only be able to apply for sponsorship from the Inn once per academic year.
Applications for the Michaelmas Term have now closed. - Applications for the Hilary term will open soon.
The Neuberger Prize
Last year Lincoln’s Inn decided to offer some prizes to those about to begin their last year of a qualifying law degree in non-Russell Group universities. Now in the second year of a three year trial, the Neuberger Prize aims to identify students who are of proven excellence and give them the opportunity to integrate with the Inn during the final year of their qualifying law degree. The Inn will select up to 5 winners and they will be given £1000 and free student membership.
Applications for 2017 have now closed. If you have been selected by your law school we must receive your tutor's supporting letter by Thursday 21 September. Information regarding the prize in 2018 will be sent to the relevant law schools in the summer.
Careers Advisers Events
There is an event once a year for Careers Advisers, which offers an opportunity to hear from and meet those at the Bar. This year's event will be held at Gray's Inn on Saturday 21st October, 3.00 - 7.30pm.
