Each year, a dozen outstanding participants in the moot court and mock trial programs are selected for membership in the Joseph Henry Lumpkin American Inn of Court. This prime learning and networking opportunity is one of the most prestigious rewards offered by UGA's superb advocacy program.
Participants interact with Georgia Supreme Court justices, and federal judges, senior partners from some of the region's finest firms and other distinguished members of the legal community. Bar leaders demonstrate trial techniques and engage in discussions about advocacy skills, professionalism, and ethics.
The Lumpkin Inn of Court, established in 1987 and named for one of the law school's founders, is one of the earliest American inns of court and is modeled after the famed English inns of court. It was also the first Inn created in the state of Georgia.
