Founding Executive Board

Our founding executive board consisted of local jurists and lawyers who came together in the spring and summer of 2017 to bring to St. Johns County an American Inn of Court. Some had experience as both members and executives with other northeast Florida Inns, others were past-presidents of the St. Johns County Bar Association, while others still brought their private practice and organizational expertise to the group.
