By the reign of Elizabeth the City of London had grown to be 'a large
excellent and mighty city of business',
a city not just of merchants but also
adventurers like Walter Raleigh and
poets and playwrights such as
Shakespeare and John Donne.
And in the centre of it all were the
four Inns of Court, the homes not
only of lawyers but also law students, joking, arguing and watching
everything that was happening.
John Mitchell, the Chair of the
Middle Temple Historical Society
will describe what life was like in
this 'third university'.
