MSU Law American Inn of Court is accepting applications

The MSU College of Law American Inn of Court is accepting applications for admission for the 2015-16 term.

The Inn meets monthly at the MSU College of Law from September to May over dinner for one-hour presentations by teams of law students and licensed attorneys on assorted topics of law and the legal practice.

Applications are welcome from any practicing attorney or judge.

Membership is limited, and the number of admissions is based on the number of available openings. Successful applicants are admitted as Law Students (2L and 3L), Associates (licensed 0-3 years), Barristers (licensed at least 3 years) or Masters (licensed 15 years or more). The range of members provides a solid basis for mentoring practitioners at the Associate level with special emphasis on Law Students.

Dues are assessed to defray the costs of dues paid to the American Inns of Court Foundation and monthly dinners. Dues are on a graduated basis depending upon the number of years in practice.

Started in the 1980s by Chief Justice Warren Burger, the American Inns of Court are designed to improve the skills, professionalism, and ethics of the bench and bar. Today, there are nearly 400 chartered American Inns of Court with almost 30,000 active members consisting of judges, law professors, practicing attorneys, and law students. Founded in 2000 by leading judges and lawyers from our legal community, the MSU College of Law American Inn of Court affords an opportunity to meet fellow jurists and practitioners in a collegial atmosphere with a goal of fostering the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct. The Inn welcomes members at all levels of experience and all areas of practice from state and federal courts, government service, and private practice.
