Starting an American Inn of Court or American Inn of Transactional Counsel 

New Inns are created by local initiatives. If there is not an Inn in your community, or if your community can support an additional Inn, you might consider starting a new Inn.

The national office provides materials that outline the process and show the way, including the booklet, "Creating an American Inn of Court" or "Creating an Inn of Transactional Counsel" for transactional Inns.
