The George Mason American Inn of Court is part of the nationwide organization, the American Inns of Court Foundation. The local chapter comprises 20 to 25 students and a maximum of 40 to 45 additional members, including judges (federal and state), practitioners, and one or two law professors from the Northern Virginia legal community. The American Inns of Court represent an adaptation of the English Inns of Court and, like the English Inns, give students a chance to interact with more experienced advocates at a monthly dinner meeting. At each dinner, a team of students and professionals present a topic of interest. The George Mason American Inn of Court presentations focus on litigation, followed by discussion and critique. Through this interaction, the Inn of Court seeks to directly enhance the ethical and professional quality of legal advocacy in America.
