2019-2020 Lamar American Inn of Court Mentorship Request Form
The Lamar American Inn of Court is based on the British Inns of Court. It is designed to bring together Pupils (Emory Law Students) with Barristers (members with 3-9 years of practice experience), Masters (members with 10+ years of practice experience), and Judges.
The Lamar Inn focuses on litigation. Its members include lawyers in all sizes and substantive areas of private practice (solo, mid-size, and large firms), as well as public defenders, prosecutors, public interest attorneys, and judges. The Inn serves as a forum for collegiality and mentoring as well as honing the litigation knowledge and skills of its members.
Participation in the mentoring program is one of the most valuable benefits of membership in the Lamar Inn of Court, but these benefits are directly commensurate with the mentee's commitment to be an active and engaged participant. Therefore, mentoring program participants are required to reach out to their assigned mentors within one (1) week of receiving their mentor assignments, and they must meet with their mentors at least three (3) times during the academic year.
Moreover, a Lamar mentoring relationship also serves as a springboard for building other meaningful relationships within the Inn, because mentors are best positioned to facilitate introductions and connections. As such, we ask that pupils who apply for membership in the mentoring program commit to attending at least three (3) of the Lamar Inn of Court membership meetings.
The 2019-2020 meetings are currently scheduled for the following dates:
- September 18, 2019
- October 22, 2019
- November 11, 2019
- January 14, 2020
- February 3, 2020
- March 24, 2020
A reception is held prior to each meeting from 5:30-6:00 pm. Important news and announcements are given from 6:00-6:15 pm. The formal program runs from 6:15 to 7:15 pm.
Participants are asked to ensure their schedules will allow them to fulfill the stated commitments. The Lamar Inn reserves the right to accept students into their mentoring program in subsequent years if the commitments are not met.
The deadline to apply for the Lamar Inn mentoring program is October 1st.
