What they do
1.1. They hold termly social gatherings 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 organise careers and professional development events for junior members.
1.4. They organise a summer dinner for junior members in the Old Hall or Great Hall.
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.
