Education & Training is one of the primary functions of the Inns of Court. The dedicated Education & Training Department has a range of responsibilities from the allocation of scholarships to training for students, pupils and barristers.
The Outreach team organises a large number of events across England and Wales and works to ensure that the Inn has a strong external presence.
