Student Information & Services

The Inn offers a number of services and provides information to its student members to help them hone their skills as advocates and introduce them to life at the Bar.  

Further information can be found using the links on the left of this page.  If you have any enquiries with regard to any of these services please contact the Education Department on 020 7427 4800.
