In 2015, a Lawyers Group was established in support of Classics for All – it has now grown to over 190 active members who contributed £41,600 in 2022. 

For a subscription of £12.50 per month (£150 per year), or £6.25 per month for under 30's, Lawyers Group members enjoy exclusive access to two Lawyers Group events per year, including our annual moot trial at the UK Supreme Court. 

Many members opt to give more by increasing their regular donation or sponsoring and donating to events. We are very grateful for any additional amount you may wish to give. Contributions from Lawyers Group members help fund Classics for All's work supporting classics teaching in state schools across the UK.

Join the Lawyers Group

We have many first rate speakers and stimulating events and are always delighted to welcome new members.' - Sir Rupert Jackson, Former Chairman of the Lawyers Group Steering Committee.

We think that Classics for All will be of special interest to lawyers – and we include in that term judges, academics, practitioners, and not least law firms. There are many reasons why. As well as the close historical connections between Rome, Latin and the law, we are confident that an education in classics will not only improve the quality of education generally, but will also improve the quality of written English, and indeed the quality of reasoning and argument – obvious values for lawyers in particular.’ - Lord Dyson, former Master of the Rolls, and Sir Francis Jacobs KCMG KC. 

The Lawyers Group is led by a Steering Committee of:

Lord Justice Singh (Chairman)
Sir Francis Jacobs KCMG KC (founding Chairman)
William Arnold
Davina Given
Mohan Rao
Jonathan Rushworth
Sir David Wootton
