Jeremy Epstein was admitted to The A. P. Tureaud American Inn of Court, a chapter of the American Inns of Court, the nation's oldest legal mentoring organization. The American Inns of Court is a national association of attorneys and judges dedicated to increasing the level of professionalism and civility in the practice of law and the enhancement of the quality of legal services in our community. The program is patterned after the 800-year-old tradition of the Inns of Court in England, in which senior attorneys tutor law students and younger attorneys within the organization of inns. Its mission is to "foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility and legal skills." Inns of Court programs provide creative, practical and interactive instruction in all areas of legal practice.
"I am honored to be a part of an organization that has been an integral part of the justice system for so long," says Epstein. "I am looking forward to both learning from and teaching my peers."
Membership to the Inn of Court must begin with a nomination from a member of the judiciary and/or an existing Inn of Court member.
