Why Become a Member?

The American Inns of Court is a national association of lawyers, judges, law professors, and students committed to professional excellence through civility, mentorship, and education. The benefits of becoming a member include fostering professional relationships with judges and prominent attorneys, receiving CLE credit, and opportunities to mentor and be mentored.

Most of the meetings for Kline School of Law Inn are held at 1200 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, consisting of a beer and wine reception with food from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, followed by a presentation from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. We offer CLE credit for the presentations included in annual dues. Per our bylaws, we ask that members attend at least fifty (50) percent of the meetings.

** Please note that due to COVID-19, this year's programs will likely be conducted remotely. **


The Inn is nationally divided into categories of membership based on experience levels varying from law students to judges, including: (1) Pupils; (2) Associates; (3) Barristers; and (4) Masters of the Bench.


"Joining the American Inn of Court was a delightful experience. Sharing ideas and insights with experienced members of the legal community was a great opportunity to develop skills through mentoring relationships. The informal environment and educational characteristic of the activities foster mentorship and open dialogue about the practice of law in a variety of settings, and provide a great opportunity to network and connect with dedicated professionals in all practicing areas."


"The Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law Inn of Court has been great for my development as both an attorney and a Philadelphian. The decision to join the Inn or Court was made as a means to stay connected with the Kline School of Law community, but has provided so much more. Through the monthly meetings I have expanded my network of attorneys in the Philadelphia area as well as gained valuable knowledge about many important issues affecting our community. I have not questioned the decision I made to join and look forward to being a part of the Inn of Court as it grows."
