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

The Coastal American Inn of Court

The American Inns of Court was started by Chief Justice of the United States Warren E. Burger in 1985, and there are more than 400 Inns in 48 states today.  Consistent with Chief Justice Burger's purpose, the Coastal Inn of Court exists to promote excellence in professionalism, ethics, and civility in the practice of law in the Grand Strand.   

The Coastal Inn of Court was presented with its official charter on October 10, 2014 by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Carolina Jean H. Toal.  Our litigation-focused Inn is comprised of roughly 70 members, ranging from judges to experienced trial advocates to outstanding students from nearby law schools.    

The Inn meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Rivertown Bistro in Conway at 6:00 p.m.  Each meeting begins with a social hour with hors d'oeuvres, after which an educational presentation is held.  Through mentoring and friendship, we work to transmit the profession's highest values from one generation to the next.
