Making our mark

Gray’s Inn is one of the four Inns of Court which have the exclusive right to call men and women to the Bar of England and Wales. For more than six hundred years, Gray’s has been home to a community of extraordinary individuals. Generations of Members have honed their craft here, standing up for truth and justice with fierce independence. Our Members’ talent, dedication and bravery has shaped, and continues to shape, the evolution of the rule of law.

Investing in our people

Gray’s Inn is its Members. The Inn exists to support, educate and develop both its aspiring and practising barrister Members in accordance with its historic traditions. With an active Membership of around five and a half thousand, including around three hundred student Members at any one time, we are run by our Members for our Members. Everything we do is inspired and implemented by our people and is designed to champion and nurture each individual’s unique talents and interests.
