The Judge Consuelo M. Callahan Inn of Court was founded in 2006 to bring together attorneys at all experience levels, law professors, judges, and law students. Through participation in Inn membership, senior members serve as mentors to junior members. All members benefit from the ethical programs that focus on gaining practical knowledge and improving professional skills. An added benefit that is derived from Inn membership and a fundamental goal of the Inn is to increase civility among our local bar.
Our Inn is sworn to our #1 rule: "What happens at the Inn, stays in the Inn!
" This is an important rule to foster and encourage mutual trust and respect. In turn, people will feel more comfortable discussing sensitive issues without fear or reprisal or criticism at a later date.
Our namesake, Judge Consuelo "Connie" M. Callahan, was chosen for good reason. Judge Callahan sits on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, but still resides in Stockton, Ca. She has risen high in her career, but maintains her local contacts and frequently attends local Court or Bar functions. Judge Callahan has served her community well, devoting her entire career to public service. She is respected and admired by this community, both legal and non-legal alike.
Our Inn has approximately 90 members at this time. This season is sure to be another successful one for this newly formed Inn, gauging by the level of participation and enthusiasm members have shown so far.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve our Inn. Welcome friends!
