The Lamar American Inn of Court

The Lamar American Inn of Court, affiliated with Emory University School of LawAE 2019 Platinum web badge

The Lamar American Inn of Court is based on the British Inns of Court. It is designed to bring together Pupils (Emory Law Students) with Barristers (members with 3-9 years of practice experience), Masters (members with 10+ years of practice experience), and Judges.

While some Inns of Court focus on different areas of practice, the Lamar Inn focuses on litigation. Its members include lawyers in all sizes and substantive areas of private practice (solo, mid-size, and large firms), as well as public defenders, prosecutors, public interest attorneys, and judges. The Inn serves as a forum for collegiality and mentoring as well as honing the litigation knowledge and skills of its members.
