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

Linn Inn Alliance

In joining the Houston Intellectual Property American Inn of Court, individuals are joining a larger intellectual property organization within the Inns of court umbrella - the Linn Inn Alliance.

The Linn Inn Alliance serves to extend the excellence of existing IP Inns of Courts to new and emerging ones. The Linn Inn Alliance does so by creating a nationwide network which offers assistance and information between the IP Inns of Court and their members. The Linn Inn Alliance maintains a list of all members of all IP Inns and sends email notices of all meetings to all members. Visiting an IP Inn of Court meeting at an IP Inn other than the one you belong to could be a unique way in which to develop extended professional relationships or contacts when on travel to a city wherein a participating IP Inn of Court is located. The Linn Inn Alliance is also working diligently to coordinate the activities of the program chairs of all IP Inns and serves as a central repository of all program materials. Thus, all IP Inns can benefit from the creation of an outstanding program and its materials created within one IP Inn. Lastly, as a corollary to providing email notices of all meetings to all Linn Alliance members, a commitment is made by all participating Inns that each Inn will welcome the attendance of any IP Inn member at all Inn meetings.

As of the start of the 2014-2015 Inn of Court year, twenty-one IP Inns are participating in the Linn Inn Alliance.  They are:
