The Inns of Court are a group of four institutions in the west of London. Since at least the 14th century people have been trained there in law. The four institutions, called inns because they provided lodging, are Gray's in, Lincoln's Inn, Inner Temple and Middle Temple. By the 16th century the Inns of Court were considered to be behind only Oxford University and Cambridge University in terms of prestige.
