EVENT: The Inner Temple History Society – King’s Inns, Dublin, and the Irish at London’s Inns of Court

Posted December 19th, 2017 in Forthcoming events by sally

Dr Colum Kenny, Emeritus Prof of Communications at Dublin City University

‘From 1542 until 1885, men wishing to practise at the Irish Bar were required first to reside
for a stipulated period at one of the London Inns of Court. The Irish barrister and sometime
Unionist leader Edward Carson heatedly described that requirement as “one of the badges
of servitude of the Irish nation.”

On the eve of Ireland’s national holiday, Dr Kenny will tell the story of King’s Inns, Dublin,
since its foundation in 1541 — with particular reference to Ireland’s long association with the
Inner Temple and other English Inns of Court.’
