Prospective Barristers and Masters

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
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.
Every year, the Inn will aim to present six programs for its
members. It will also provide opportunities to participate in the
Inn's mentoring program and a community service project.
Attorneys in private practice pay $210 per year, attorneys
employed by the government pay $50 per year,
and attorneys in public interest fields pay $25.
Judges are exempt from dues. Dues include standard CLE
The nomination period for Masters and Barristers is open during the
Summer months. Members are not eligible to nominate attorneys from
their own firm or employer, but if there is an appropriate
candidate who is interested, members may contact another Master or
Barrister at a different firm or employer to "trade"
Nominations must be received via email on or before August 13,
