Fostering Excellence in Professionalism, Ethics, Civility, and Legal Skills

Local Inn Programming

Monthly programs are the cornerstone of each Inn, and provide the unique opportunity for all levels of the profession to come together, engage in discussion, and learn from each other.  A well-organized program promotes professional development, collegiality among members of the legal community, and in many cases, satisfies members' CLE requirements in an interesting and engaging manner. 

During monthly meetings, pupillage teams plan, research and present programs, newly created by the team or ordered from the Program Library. A Master of the Bench leads the team consisting of one or more Masters of the Bench (including a judge), one or more Barristers, one or more Associates and/or one or more Pupils. It is helpful to have as many pupillage teams as there are regular meetings so that each team is responsible for no more than one program per year.
