What is Lincoln’s Inn?
LincoIn’s Inn is present in London. It is one of the four Inns of the court in the city to which barristers of England and Wales belong and where they are called to the Bar. The bar committee plays a vital role in the affairs of the Inn, according to its official website. The committee’s other objective is to present representation on account of those who have been called to the Bar by the Inn and those who have not been elected Masters of the Bench.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was also part of the same Bar Representation Committee. Have something to add? Let us know in the comment section below.
