Book Club

Do you like reading books? More importantly, do you love discussing your reads with fellow readers? Our Librarian and Dean are hosting a Book Club for students, members and the wider alumni community at King’s Inns. 

Here’s how it will work

  • We will organise about five meetings in the course of the academic year, via Zoom. Meetings will take place in the evening, at a time when we hope most of you will be able to attend.
  • We will read books related to law or by legal authors, but NO textbooks or academic books. We may also include some books related to other topics.
  • You do not need to read the whole book in order to come along to the meeting but just be aware that there may be spoilers during the chat about the book if you haven’t got to the end by the time we meet online.
  • You do not have to attend every meeting, please sign up at any time to come along to the next book club meeting.

How to get involved for 2021 – 2022

Oct 2021

The first Book Club meeting of the academic and legal year 2021–2022 will take place on Monday, 8 November 2021 at 7 pm via Zoom.

To decide what book to discuss first we ran a Twitter poll and the winner by a close margin was The Supreme Court by Ruadhán Mac Cormaic.

To attend one or more book club, please register below. We are asking last year’s participants to reregister.
