The Inns of Court are unincorporated associations which have existed since the 14th Century and play a central role in the recruitment of student members, training of aspiring barristers and continuing professional development of established barristers. The Inns of Court hold the exclusive rights to call candidates to practise law at the Bar of England and Wales. They consist of the Honourable Societies of the Inner Temple, Middle Temple, Lincoln's Inn and Gray's Inn.
The Inn has over 8,000 qualified members, including Judges, Barristers (both practising and non-practising) and Pupils. Each year approximately 450 students apply to join the Inn with the intention of training for the Bar.
