About King’s Inns

Based between Henrietta Street and Constitution Hill in Dublin 1, The Honorable Society of King’s Inns, founded in 1541, is Ireland’s Oldest School of Law. King’s Inns provides professional legal education and training for people wishing to become barristers. The School also reaches a broader community by offering a wide range of part time and blended learning courses in specialist areas of the law.

King’s Inns comprises benchers, barristers and students. The benchers include all the judges of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court and a number of elected barristers. Many of the world–famous legal and political figures over the past centuries have been members of The Honorable Society of King’s Inns, or former participants in our legal education courses.
