Become a Bencher of Gray’s Inn

The responsibility for the organisation and running of the Inn is divided between the Masters of the Bench (also known as 'Benchers') in Pension and the Under Treasurer, its Chief Executive. 

Members can make a 2021 Application for Consideration to Become a Bencher of Gray’s Inn by 4 June 2021.

The Inn has recently undertaken a review of the process by which the Masters of the Bench are elected to ensure it does not unfairly discriminate or exclude (find out more in our Equality and Diversity statement). 

To make the system of electing Benchers fairer and more transparent and to encourage applications from all those who desire to contribute to the governance of the Inn, a new procedure has been introduced by Pension in which members of the Inn post 10 years’ Call apply for consideration to become a Bencher.
