Justice Thomas R. Lee of the Utah Supreme Court will be at the law school on Thursday, April 4 at noon in room 306 to talk about the American Inns of Court and to answer any questions. All students are invited to attend. The American Inns of Court program is a great opportunity for students to interact with local judges, attorneys and other law students. Our local Inn, the A. Sherman Christensen Inn of Court I, meets once a month during the school year to eat dinner together and to discuss some topic of legal practice. Recent topics have included legal writing, legislation, ethics, changes to the Utah Rules of Civil Procedure, and expert witnesses. Students get to participate in the discussion and hear first-hand the ideas and experiences of experienced attorneys and judges.
Each year the Inn accepts about 25 applicants to be student members of the Inn. Applications were sent out via lawmailer a week or so ago, but if you need one don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is Friday, April 12, 2013.
