About the Inn

The American Inns of Court (AIC) are designed to improve the skills, professionalism, and ethics of the bench and bar. The Honorable Robert J. Bryan American Inn of Court is a long-standing local chapter of the American Inns of Court, America’s oldest, largest, and fastest growing legal mentoring organization.

The Bryan AIC continues its outreach by seeking new members who share the values embodied by the American Inns of Court.

Meetings and Membership

The Bryan AIC meets one Monday evening per month, September through May, both to share a meal and to hold programs and discussions on matters of ethics, skills, and professionalism, with the goal of fostering more effective advocacy and a keener ethical awareness.

The meetings begin at 5:30 pm with a CLE component followed by a dinner meeting; attendance at both the CLE and the dinner meeting is required.

Huneke Fellowship

The Huneke Fellowship is an annual program administered by the Washington State Bar Association’s International Practice Section (IPS). The Fellowship is designed to provide real-world experience, networking opportunities, and modest financial assistance to a law student interested in the international practice of law. The Huneke Fellow will also have the opportunity to work directly with practitioners in the field of international law on IPS events and logistics. 

Each year the IPS awards one Huneke Fellowship, which includes a $1,000 stipend, to a current 1L or 2L student.

Each Huneke Fellow agrees to serve as the official student liaison of the IPS for the subsequent school year and is expected to:

  • Act as the chief point of contact between the IPS and the law schools;
  • Assist with the planning and execution of IPS initiatives such as the Mentor-Mentee Program, the Spring CLE event, and the Annual General Meeting;
  • Publicize each IPS event at all three Washington state law schools; and
  • Encourage interested law students to become IPS members and apply for the following year’s Fellowship.

Any current 1L or 2L attending law school in Washington State is eligible for the Huneke Fellowship.

The Huneke Fellowship was created to honor the memory of Rob Huneke, a dedicated and highly regarded international attorney who served for many years on the Executive Committee of the International Practice Section before passing away at a young age. Rob volunteered countless hours to improve the International Practice Section and the services it provided to section members, and was highly supportive of young lawyers trying to develop an international practice. More information regarding Rob Huneke and the history of the Fellowship is available on the following IPS webpage (please scroll down to “Huneke Fellowship”).

To apply for the Huneke Fellowship, please send a (i) cover letter (maximum 500 words), (ii) resume, (iii) law school transcript, and (iv) short writing sample (3-5 pages) to Elly Baxter by April 30, 2023.
