The early role of the Inns of Court in the education and training of Barristers
Call to the Bar by an Inn of Court is the gateway to entitlement to practise. Further training and education must be undertaken throughout a barrister’s career, during which barristers are able to draw on their Inns’ resources.
Lying behind the formal training requirements is a very considerable degree of pastoral and educational support, which the Inns provide to pupils as well as new and established practitioners.
