Royal Courts of Justice

Royal Courts of Justice

2nd November 2017
6:00pm to 8:30pm

Royal Courts (CC steve keiretsu) 1

Our host will be the eminent High Court Judge, The Honourable
Mr Justice Mostyn.

After a tour of the fascinating Royal Courts of Justice we will retire to the legal chambers of The 36 Group (36 Beford Row) for a drinks reception and the chance to socialise with our host.

There are only 35 places on the tour so please book early if you don’t want to miss out.

We need to be at the West Green entrance of the Royal Courts promptly at 6pm, so if you’d like to arrive a little early Dale will be in The George opposite the Royal Courts from 5:30 We can then go across as a group. The George started life as a Coffee House in 1793. The pub’s mock-Tudor facade dates from 1898.

The Impressive Victorian Gothic architecture of the Law Courts seems to come straight out of Harry Potter. It is one of the largest courts in Europe and sits on the border between Westminster and the City of London. Opened by Queen Victoria in 1882 it is the best-known work of architect George Street.

The Courts sit on a 6 acre site (which formerly held 450 houses). This cathedral to the Law is filled with elaborate carving and marble mosaic.

 

Our thanks to Justice Mostyn for his valuable time and support, to The 36 Group for hosting the reception and to B-AS member Julius Brookman for his valuable contribution in organising the event.
