New President of the Council of the Inns of Court

The Trustees of the Council of the Inns of Court (“COIC”), have appointed The Rt Hon Lord Justice Nicholas Green to succeed Mr Desmond Browne CBE QC as the President of COIC.

COIC is delighted that Lord Justice Green has accepted the appointment. His leadership of the Law Commission and his long experience in other roles, including Chair of the Advocacy Training Council (the forerunner of the Inns of Court College of Advocacy) and Chair of the Bar Council of England and Wales have provided him with practical and professional insight which will serve COIC well.

Desmond Browne CBE QC will step down as the President of COIC at the end of April 2022. He will have served as President for six years and nurtured to maturity the newly established COIC charity and Inns of Court College of Advocacy.
