I was honored last night to receive an award for serving as President of our Inn of Court, the First Family Law American Inn of Court, for the 2016-2017 Inn year.

I have written about the American Inns of Court before. The First Family Law American Inn of Court in Miami is a group consisting of lawyers, judges, magistrates, and judicial officers dedicated to professionalism, ethics, civility and excellence in the area of divorce, family law, child custody and related matters.

In recent Inns news, our Inns sponsored a Town Hall meeting for the Family Law Bench and Bar of the Family Division of the 11th Judicial Circuit. The event was held at the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse and hosted by the Hon. Scott Bernstein, Administrative Judge of the Family Division, and attended by members of the Bar, and almost all of the family division bench – including many incoming judges.

Sponsorship of Town Hall meetings helps our Inns of Court fulfill its mission to inspire the legal community, and to advance the rule of law by achieving the highest level of professionalism through example, education and mentoring.
