Organiser The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn

Organiser of EDI Forum: Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on Retention

Lincoln's Inn is one of the four Inns of Court. The Inns of Court have played a fundamental role in preparing students for Call to the Bar and their progress to professional competence as barristers for many centuries.  With that role at its heart, it is nonetheless a very multifarious organisation: a collegiate and educational institution, a membership organisation, a professional body, a landlord, a custodian of historic buildings, a banqueting venue and a tourist attraction.
