The James L. Petigru Inn of Court promotes the American Inns of Court Diversity Policy in its selection of new Inn members, in its program topic selection, as well as in its community outreach efforts. To begin with, the Nominating Committee spent much time, during the new membership selection process, nominating individuals with different backgrounds, levels of exprerience in the legal profession; different areas of practice; as well as who work in a variety of legal settings. The Program Chair and the Programming Committee spent a great deal of time ensuring that the programs selected for the year would be of interest to members with diverse backgrounds, different levels of experience, different areas of practice, and those that work in a variety of settings. During the programs, discussion was encouraged to promote the sharing of diverse opinions. In the Inn's community outreach work with One80 Place, Inn members discussed a variety of areas of the law with individuals in the community.

In the 2020-2021 Inn Year, the Petigru Inn intends to continue its work on the promotion of diversity and the American Inns of Court Diversity Policy.
