The Hon. William B. Enright Inn of Court is composed of Associates, Barristers and Masters. Associates are invited to join the Inn for two years, Barristers for three years, and Masters for life. Barristers are experienced lawyers, who may have as much as 25 or 30 years of experience, or sometimes as little as five years experience. Associates generally are younger lawyers, some of whom have considerable experience, and some of whom are relatively new to the practice of law.
The Inn year runs from September through May. The monthly meetings during each Inn year qualify for 10.5 hours of MCLE credits, including specialty credits such as legal ethics, competence, and recognition and elimination of bias.
Yearly dues for attorneys in private practice is $400. Dues for attorneys in the public sector is $300. Dues cover six meeting dinners (a $150 value), 10.5 MCLE hours (over $250 value), admission to the annual Joint Inns of Court Dinner (a $90 value), and admission to a Padres baseball game in a private seating area after our annual Petco Park team presentation (a $50 value).
