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.

Criminal Justice Reform in Georgia
November 19, 2019

Conveners: Vincent Russo and Susan Coppedge
Location:    State Bar of Georgia, 104 Marietta St., Atlanta GA 30303

The Lamar Inn of Court is honored to be joined by Governor Nathan Deal and Marissa Dodson, Public Policy Director at the Southern Center for Human Rights, for a discussion about criminal justice reform.  This important policy area is one that has gained significant bipartisan support across the country in recent years.  In 2011, under the leadership of Governor Deal, the State of Georgia decided it was time for an evidence-driven approach to criminal justice.  With support on both sides of the aisle, Georgia implemented criminal justice reforms to rein in prison growth through initiatives that hold offenders accountable while reducing costs, crime, and recidivism.  Since that time, Georgia has served as a national model for criminal justice reform.
