The Texas Tech University School of Law American Inn of Court is the first Inn established in West Texas. The American Inns of Court is a national organization that actively engages more than 25,000 judges, attorneys, law professors, and law students. The Mission of the American Inns of Court is “to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills.” The Inn achieves this goal by gathering local attorneys for dinner once a month, during which the members interact with each other and also participate in continuing legal education programs, most frequently emphasizing ethics, professionalism, civility, and practice skills. Senior attorneys serve as mentors for more junior members.

Tracing its origins to 13th century England, when new attorneys apprenticed in an “Inn,” membership in an American Inn is composed of the following categories: Masters of the Bench—judges, experienced lawyers, and law professors; Barristers—lawyers with some experience who do not meet the minimum requirements for Masters; Associates—lawyers who do not meet the minimum requirement for Barristers; and Pupils—law students.
