The American Inns of Court is a national organization with chapters across the United States, and a rich history dating back to 14th century England. The AICs are designed to improve the skills, professionalism, and ethics of the bench and bar. Membership is comprised of a selected group of judges, lawyers, law professors, and law students. Through Membership, lawyers become more effective advocates and counselors with keener ethical awareness. All members learn side-by-side with the most experienced judges and attorneys in the community.

The Bryan AIC meets once a month, September through May, to attend programs on matters of ethics, skills, and professionalism, and to continue discussion afterwards over dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. The Bryan AIC helps lawyers and judges rise to higher levels of excellence, professionalism, and ethical awareness.
