We have a diverse membership spanning from students  just starting out on the path to a career at the bar, through to pupils, new practitioners, senior barristers and members of the judiciary.

Our Members are involved in various committees that contribute to the Inn, ensuring that our Members views are central to the organisation and running of the Inn.

Pension, which comprises of our Masters of the Bench (also known as ‘Benchers’), and the Under Treasurer, its Chief Executive, is the Inn’s governing body.

The Management Committee is responsible for the general management of the business of the Inn.

The Barristers’ Committee is seen as the ‘Voice of Hall’ and represents the view of Members of Hall who are barristers and are not Masters of the Bench.

The AGIS Committee (Association of Gray’s Inn Students) is comprised of current Bar Course students with representatives at Bar Course providers both in London and on Circuit. Committee members also serve on the Student Affairs Committee of the Inn.

Seniors in Hall are a committee of Members of the Inn (collectively known as the Panel) responsible to the Bench and selected to fulfil certain duties in Hall during student events.

Individuals who support and contribute to the life of the Inn, but are not Members, may be invited to become a Fellow of the Inn.

To find out more about how the Inn is run, read the rules applicable to our Members.

Gray’s Inn is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive environment for its Members, and all those who take part in its training, activities, events and use its facilities. Our Code of Conduct applies to all Members.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) are fundamental principles of justice and underpin all we do at Gray’s Inn. Our ED&I Committee authored a statement which was approved by Pension which sets out what we believe, what we want to achieve and what we will do. Read the Gray’s Inn ED&I Statement
