SALON NO. 69: THE SECRETS OF LEGAL LONDON
The Truth and Nothing but the...
Each ticket includes 'a sentence' of Hendricks Gin
Hidden right in the middle of the city of London is the tranquil, almost secret, labyrinth of the Temples and the Inns of Court: the built analogue of the secretive, labyrinthine system of the ancient British legal system. Join ex-lawyer COLIN DAVEY and practicing barrister PETER DODGE as they hold court and present the case for Legal London.
PETER DODGE is a Chancery barrister practising in Lincoln’s Inn. His interest in legal history (and London) has led him to write about William Woodfall (1771-1806) , the original author of the oldest English legal textbook still in publication, to speak on Byron and the Court of Chancery and to devise 1711 Walk, a walking route linking the 12 (out of an intended 50) “Queen Anne” churches built following an Act of Parliament of 1711.
COLIN DAVEY a former partner in a City law firm is a researcher, writer and City of London, City of Westminster and National Trust Guide. He lead bespoke guided walks through Legal London and historic parts of the city.
