Welcome to the Prettyman - Leventhal
American Inn of Court website. We invite you to join us in
the exploration of
administrative law as we embark on a new
year of programs, meetings and social events.
The American Inns of Court is a
group of organizations, not affiliated with the American Bar
Association, dedicated to enhancing civility, ethics and
professionalism. The Prettyman - Leventhal Chapter of the
American Inns of Court is based in Washington, DC.
While our focus is on administrative law, we pride ourselves on the
wide range of experience and varied specialties of our
members. Our active membership is made up of representatives
of all levels of the bench and bar, as well as law professors and
The Prettyman - Leventhal chapter is
intended to provide a congenial forum for informal discussion of
contemporary issues in administrative law. We have a monthly
program addressing a timely and challenging topic in administrative
law, usually through some humorous vehicle such as a skit, mock
hearing or other engaging format. We occasionally have guest
expert speakers as part of these programs.
The Inn has an active mentoring
program, that pairs volunteer "masters" with law students and new
lawyers to help provide advice and career guidance. Perhaps
most importantly, the Inn serves as a hub for networking among its
members, allowing both newcomers and experienced professionals to
exchange ideas and share their experiences.
