The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn is one of four Inns of Court exclusively entitled to Call their members to the Bar of England and Wales. A thriving association of students, barrister and judges, we proudly provide support, education and camaraderie to members at every stage of their careers.
As part of the Lincoln’s Inn 600th anniversary year celebrations during 2022, the Inn set out to a record the thoughts and recollections of five of its members, through an oral history project, carried out by oral historian Sarah Gudgin. Each interview reveals aspects of the lives and careers of the interviewees and explores a sense of the continuity of both the legal profession and the role of the Inn in people’s lives.
The long term aim of the project is to create an on-going oral history archive of the Inn, adding more recordings over time, covering a wide range of Inn experiences, including those of students, pupils, employees, tenants, clerks, benchers, KCs and Judges.
We are most grateful for the generous time and contributions of all of our interviewees who took part in the project, which we hope you will enjoy listening to. read less
