The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple known as the Inner Temple, is one of the four Inns of Court in London. To be called to the Bar and practise as a barrister in England and Wales, a person must belong to one of these Inns, it is located in the wider Temple area of the capital, near the Royal Courts of Justice, within the City of London. The Inn is a professional body that provides legal training and regulation for members, it is ruled by a governing council called "Parliament", made up of the Masters of the Bench, led by the Treasurer, elected to serve a one-year term. The Temple takes its name from the Knights Templar, who leased the land to the Temple's inhabitants; the Inner Temple was a distinct society from at least 1388, although as with all the Inns of Court its precise date of founding is not known. After a disrupted early period it flourished, becoming the second-largest Inn during the Elizabethan period; the Inner Temple expanded during the reigns of James I and Charles I, with 1,700 students admitted between 1600 and 1640.
The First English Civil War's outbreak led to a complete suspension of legal education, with the Inns close to being shut down for four years. Following the English Restoration the Inner Templars welcomed Charles II back to London with a lavish banquet. After a period of slow decline in the 18th century, the following 100 years saw a restoration of the Temple's fortunes, with buildings constructed or restored, such as the Hall and the Library. Much of this work was destroyed during The Blitz, when the Hall, Temple Church, many sets of chambers were devastated. Rebuilding was completed in 1959, today the Temple is a flourishing and active Inn of Court, with over 8,000 members; the Inner Temple is one of the four Inns of Court, along with Gray's Inn, Lincoln's Inn, the Middle Temple. The Inns are responsible for training and selecting barristers within England and Wales, are the only bodies allowed to call a barrister to the Bar and allow him or her to practice; the Temple is an independent, unincorporated organisation, works as a trust.
It has 8,000 members and around 450 apply to join per year. Although the Inn was a disciplinary and teaching body, these functions are now shared between the four Inns, with the Bar Standards Board acting as a disciplinary body and the Inns of Court and Bar Educational Trust providing education; the history of the Inner Temple begins in the early years of the reign of Henry II, when the contingent of Knights Templar in London moved from the Old Temple in Holborn to a new location on the banks of the River Thames, stretching from Fleet Street to what is now Essex House. The original Temple covered much of what is now the northern part of Chancery Lane, which the Knights created to provide access to their new buildings; the old Temple became the London palace of the Bishop of Lincoln. After the Reformation it became the home of the Earl of Southampton, the location is now named Southampton Buildings; the first group of lawyers came to live here during the 13th century, although as legal advisers to the Knights rather than as a society.
The Knights fell out of favour, the order was dissolved in 1312, with the land seized by the king and granted to the Knights Hospitaller. The Hospitallers did not live on the property, but rather used it as a source of revenue through rent. During the 12th and 13th centuries the law was taught in the City of London by the clergy. During the 13th century two events happened; as a result, the Church ceased to have a role in legal education in London. The secular, common law lawyers migrated to the hamlet of Holborn, as it was easy to get to the law courts at Westminster Hall and was just outside the City. Two groups occupied the Hospitaller land, became known as the "inner inn" and the "middle inn"; these became the Inner Temple and the Middle Temple, were distinct societies by 1388, when they are mentioned in a year book. The Hospitallers leased the land to the Inner Temple for £10 a year, with students coming from Thavie's Inn to study there. There are few records of the Inner Temple from the 14th and 15th centuries—indeed, from all the societies, although Lincoln's Inn's records stretch back to 1422.
The Temple was sacked by Wat Tyler and his rebels during the Peasants' Revolt in 1381, with buildings pulled down and records destroyed. John Stow wrote that, after breaking into Fleet Prison, the rebels: went to the Temple to destroy it, plucked down the houses, tooke off the tyles of the other buildings left; this house they spoyled for wrathe they bare to the prior of St. John's, unto whom it belonged, after a number of them had sacked this Temple, what with labour and what with wine being overcome, they lay down under the walls and housing, were slain like swyne, one of them killing another for old grudge and hatred, an
