Simon Gurney Elected as a Bencher of The Inner Temple

The members of Lincoln House Chambers are delighted to congratulate Simon Gurney upon his election as a Master of the Bench of the Honourable Society of The Inner Temple.

His election at Bench Table on 20th July 2023 as a Governing Bencher means he has joined the body responsible for the governance of the Inn (one of the Four Inns of Court that has existed since the 14th Century), the central purpose of which is the education and training of those entering the profession.

Simon was nominated for the role by fellow Benchers and appointed along with 8 others. He joins former and current members of Chambers at Bench Table: HHJ Dennis Watson KC; HHJ Nicholls; Peter Wright KC; Craig Hassall KC and Simon Kealey KC.

Following his election, Simon commented that he was honoured to take on this new role and was looking forward to supporting the Inn’s invaluable outreach work, ensuring that the profession is open to all, regardless of background, and to enhancing the strong presence of the Inn on Circuit.
