Junior Members’ Committee

The Junior Members’ Committee (JMC) is a sub-Committee of the Bar Representation Committee. The Sub-Committee represent all members of Hall at Lincoln’s Inn who are 7 years’ Call and below.

The purpose of the group is to represent and promote the interests of the junior members of Hall (7 years’ Call and below). They also organise social and educational events for the junior members of Hall and collaborate with the Member Engagement team at the Inn, the Lincoln’s Inn Students Association and the Inter-Inn Young Bar Working Group.

To stay up-to-date with their events and initiatives please follow the JMC Facebook page or check the ‘What’s On’ section of the Inn’s website for up to date upcoming event information for junior members.

Regular events and initiatives include:

  • Termly social gatherings for Junior members in the MCR Restaurant & Bar.
  • A football team for Lincoln’s Inn. While the team is open to all, so far only men have signed up. The JMC is looking into starting similar schemes for tennis, netball and rounders.
  • Career and professional development events for junior members.
  • An annual summer dinner and winter event for junior members.
  • Collaboration with the Inter-Inn Young Bar Working Group. The Working Group organises quarterly inter-Inn drinks for junior members with the venue rotating between the Inns. This group has agreed to work to set up further sports teams and is looking into an inter-Inn sports day.
