About the Inn


The American Inns of Court, which were founded in 1977 by United States Chief Justice Warren Burger and are patterned after the English Inns of Court, emphasize the value of learning the craft of lawyering from those already established in the profession.  As Justice Burger explained, “[w]hat is imperatively needed is more emphasis on professional ethics, of manners and deportment in the courtroom and in the practice; in short, the necessity for civility in what is inherently a contentious human enterprise.” 


For the past 20 years, the Southern California Business Litigation Inn of Court has continued that tradition by gathering legal professionals for entertaining and informative programs that not only provide those much needed MCLE credits, but also an opportunity to enjoy a delicious dinner and complementary wine with your esteemed colleagues and judges.  Proudly affiliated with the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Inn does not present the usual stuffy MCLE event – rather, our programs are designed to engage in a free spirited discussion of issues ranging from cutting edge legal concepts, ethical quandaries, and nuts and bolts procedural questions that vex lawyers on an everyday basis. 


We have an entertaining slate of programs lined up, which are on your right.


Membership for the 2016-2017 Inn of Court is $125, which covers dues payable to the National Inn of Court and administrative fees.  Membership in the Beverly Hills Bar Association is required for Inn of Court Membership. Each program is $100 for Inn members, and $135 for guests, which means becoming a member earns you a substantial savings even if you attend only three events.  If you are curious about joining but unsure about becoming a full-fledged member, you can attend one of our events at the $100 member price (one time only).


Our events are held at the Westside Tavern, located at the Westside Pavillion at 10800 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064, where you will get a great meal and free parking!  So click the link below and join what is an informative and entertaining way to get to know your colleagues and profession that much better.
