The Linn Inn Alliance
The Linn Inn Alliance was founded by the Honorable Richard Linn, U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, in concert with Hal Wegner of
Foley & Lardner in Washington, D.C., and Olivia Luk of Jenner &
Block in Chicago, IL. What began as an ad hoc effort in 2008 to unite
the then six existing intellectual property law focused American Inns of
Court has now taken root both as a catalyst in the formation of new
IP-focused Inns and as a vehicle for the sharing of meeting and program
information- and for the enhancement of the Inns of Court experience
among all of the members of the now 25 intellectual property law
American Inns of Court around the country and in Japan.
Inn Alliance operates under the umbrella of the Richard Linn American
Inn of Court with the financial support of each member Inn. The Alliance
has developed a model for the formation of new Inns based on the steps
taken by Olivia Luk and the other founding members of the Richard Linn
Inn in Chicago.
Attendance at meetings of Alliance member Inns is
open to all members of sister Inns who are able to attend. If you are
planning an upcoming trip and would like to coordinate your trip to
