Who We Are: 

The Cole-Davidson American Inn of Court was founded in 2022 to promote diversity, civility, ethics, and excellence in appellate advocacy; and to provide educational experiences that will improve and enhance the abilities of lawyers as counselors and advocates and of judges as adjudicators and judicial administrators. The Inn draws members from across the State of Maryland and the Washington-Metropolitan area, and meets monthly in Annapolis, Maryland.

What We Do: 

The Cole-Davidson Inn pursues the objectives of the American Inns of Court with its focus on appellate advocacy. The Inn will endeavor, each year, to establish robust education and pupilage programs with teams comprised of Bencher, Barrister, and Associate members of the Inn, as well as law students from the Maryland and Washington-Metropolitan area law schools. The Inn will meet in Annapolis six times each year on the last Wednesday of the month.
