Inn of Court in United Kingdom

Inn of Court in North Ireland

The Inn of Court of Northern Ireland was established at a meeting of the Bench and Bar held on 11 January 1926. Prior to that date, and following the coming into force of the Government of Ireland Act 1920, the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland had, under the appropriate warrants, called members of Bar to the Inner Bar in Northern Ireland as King’s Counsel.

While the Inn of Court of Northern Ireland has existed for some time as a concept, it had lacked the premises to conduct social gatherings, hold meetings and training events until the opening of the Bar Library premises in Chichester Street.

Now the Inn provides a venue for a variety of functions, some of which have involved the wider business community and offers training opportunities.
