Administrative history: the Committee was formed by the four Inns of Court in March 1894 to jointly consider issues referred to it by the individual Inns and then report back to the Inns for their decision. Five Benchers, all of whom had to be practising Barristers and at least two being Juniors, were appointed to serve on the Committee by each Inn. The Committee continued until June 1962 when it was dissolved and the records were transferred by the Committee Secretary to the Executive Committee of the Four Inns of Court.
Scope and content: contains printed agenda papers and the printed reports of the meetings. Most reports to 1924 are annotated with details of the adoption of the Committee’s resolutions by the four Inns.
Finding aids: BCO/38/06 contains the index to BCO/38/01 to BCO/38/05.
