The four Inns of Court - Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Gray's Inn and Lincoln's Inn - are traditionally the bastions of the legal establishment in England which control admission to the Bar. Now they are run like more like clubs. The Inns of Chancery were related to the Inns of Court, involved in the education of legal students, but they were lesser establishments than the Inns of Court as they had no right to call students to the Bar.
