The History of the Joseph B. Campbell American Inn of
The Honorable Joseph B. Campbell Inn of Court was chartered on
March 30, 1992, and was the first Inn chartered in the Inland
Empire. It is named after one of the most distinguished jurists
from San Bernardino County, former Presiding Justice of the Fourth
Appellate District, Division Two, Joseph B. Campbell.
Justice Campbell was born and raised in the Inland Empire
(Victorville) and attended Yale for his under graduate degree and
USC for law school. He was first a Superior Court Judge then
elevated to the Presiding Justice. His reputation for his legal
acumen, integrity and ethics were a model for all of us who knew
him, and the reason the Inn took his name.
The first President of our Inn was Bruce McLachlan, Esq. Serving
thereafter was William Shapiro, Esq., the Honorable Wilfred J.
Schneider, Jr., the Honorable David A. Williams, the Honorable
Leslie E. Murad, II, the Honorable John Pacheco, Traci Whaley
Patino, Esq., and the Honorable Barbara A. Buchholz. Our current
President is the Honorable Diane I. Anderson.
In 2007, the Joseph B. Campbell Inn established a scholarship to
support those college-bound high school seniors who excel in Mock
Trial in civility and presentation. The Inn believes it important
to encourage students in recognition of a job well done.
