Junior Members’ Committee
In 2017, the Junior Members’ Association served both students and junior members. In 2018, a separate association for student members has been created (Lincoln’s Inn Students’ Association). Therefore, the Junior Members’ Committee now focuses solely on representing all members below 7 years’ call.
The Junior Members Committee is now a sub-committee of the Bar Representation Committee. We are organising a range of events for you, as well as representing your views through the Bar Representation Committee. We are also working with the Inn’s Student Association and the Inter-Inn Young Bar Working Group to continue creating events that are tailored to your needs and interests.
Who We Are
The Junior Members’ Committee is co-chaired by Ben Hamer and Hazel Jackson. Members are: Rebecca Costello, Genevieve King, Ravi Jackson, Max Myers and Harriet Wakeman.

What we do
1.1. We are holding termly drinks for Junior members, usually in the MCR.
1.2. The JMC set up a football team for Lincoln’s Inn. Two fixtures against Gray’s Inn have already been played and another is planned. While the team is open to all, so far (December 2019) only men have signed up. This is one of the reasons that the JMC is looking into starting similar schemes for tennis, netball and rounders. Maxwell Myers is taking the lead on tennis. Genevieve King is taking the lead on netball and rounders. A rounders game agains Gray’s Inn took place in June 2019.
1.3. The JMC has been organising events for pupils, such as ‘The Second Six and Beyond’
1.4. The JMC is organising a dinner for junior members in the summer in the Great Hall. The first one in July 2019 was a great success and we aim to make this an annual event.
1.5. The representatives of junior members groups from the four Inns meet regularly for an Inter-Inn Young Bar Working Group meeting. The Working Group is organising quarterly inter-Inn drinks for junior members with the venue rotating between the Inns. The WG has agreed to work to set up further sports teams and is looking into an inter-Inn sports day.
