Welcome to The Honorable Society of King’s Inns. Founded in 1541 under a lease from Henry VIII, King’s Inns is Ireland’s oldest legal institution and oldest School of Law. Many famous legal and political figures over the past centuries have been members of the Society or are former participants in our legal education courses.
Designed by James Gandon and located on Dublin’s Constitution Hill, King’s Inns is an important example of Ireland’s Georgian architectural heritage. King’s Inns is also one of Ireland’s most interesting social venues, built on a tradition of collegiality and fine dining.
Whilst we are particularly proud of our legal history and the traditions of the Society, our greatest attribute is the unique legal education we offer at King’s Inns. See the list above of courses for would–be lawyers and for people who simply wish to inform themselves on the impact of the law in particular areas of business life and public administration.
It helped to foster a real sense of collegiality among the students – something that is so important to life at the Bar.
