The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn is one of four Inns of Court in Londonmarker to which barristers of England and Wales belong and where they are called to the Bar. The other three are Middle Templemarker, Inner Templemarker and Gray's Innmarker. Although Lincoln's Inn is able to trace its official records beyond those of the other three, by tradition, none of the Inns claims to be the oldest of the four. It is believed to be named for Lincoln de Lacy, the third Earl of Lincoln.

Lincoln's Inn is situated in Holbornmarker, in the London Borough of Camdenmarker, just on the border with the City of Londonmarker and the City of Westminstermarker, and across the road from Royal Courts of Justicemarker. The nearest tube station is Chancery Lanemarker.

Architecture

Stone Buildings were designed by Sir Robert Taylor and the Great Hall by the father and son architects, Philip and Philip Charles Hardwick. Another famous architect, Giles Gilbert Scott, also contributed to the Great Hall and it can be clearly seen which part Philip Hardwick wanted to be known for as his initials are shown one side of the building as P.H. - 1843.
