INNovation Education is an online portal for attorneys interested in high-quality online education focused on civility, ethics and professionalism, all core competencies of the American Inns of Court.
Did you know that if you are a member of a local American Inn of Court, your membership includes membership in the national organization, as well? The dues you pay to your local Inn gain you entry into nationally organized events and education, access to a variety of resources and interaction with American Inns of Court members all across the country.
If you are an alumnus or emeritus member of an American Inn of Court, we welcome you back to the American Inns of Court community.
If you don’t have the opportunity to become a member of a local Inn, no worries! We invite you to engage with the larger community through education and other activities that focus on civility, ethics and professionalism.
Learning levels are a way to identify programs at the correct difficulty or intensity, for where an attorney is in either their life and career stages, which allows learners to explore content that is relevant, provides takeaways and real-world application, and offers challenges. These levels ensure that content is appropriate for the level of experience with the subject matter.*
- Foundational: Focus on awareness and factual recall. Appropriate for those with limited experience of the subject who are seeking introductory understanding of the content area.
- Applied: Focus on understanding and comprehension. Appropriate for those with some experience who are seeking to build on, apply, or enhance existing knowledge using content in practical applications to master concepts.
- Strategic: Focus on application and implementation of highly technical or detailed topics. Appropriate for those with substantial prerequisite knowledge who are seeking the most up-to-date information to heighten expertise.
* These levels are adapted from American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) guidelines.
Audiences are segmented for relevance*:
- Student: Learners who are still in law school.
- Associate: Learners with 1-5 years of practice experience, looking for exposure, taking on specific cases/tasks for clients, with a high to moderate level of supervision and guidance.
- Barrister: Learners with 6-15 years of practice experience, looking to build expertise, taking on complex matters for clients with multi-faceted needs, with a low level of supervision and guidance and increasing independence.
- Masters of the Bench: Learners with more than 15 years of practice, looking to utilize expertise, taking on complex and detailed matters for clients with complicated needs, providing supervision and guidance to other attorneys.
* If a program is not tagged for a specific audience, it means that it is appropriate for all groups, or mixed groups of participants.
