Coke Inn Members –
This September brings with it the prospect of a change in composition at one of our most important appellate institutions. With that in mind, I’m pleased to announce that 14 new members have joined our Inn of Court. The new members are:
Inn Members –
I’ve been asked to share this link, advertising an opening for an Appellate Supervisor position (at the Assistant General Counsel level) at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Those interested in additional information can reach out to Jennifer Goldstein at the EEOC at (202) 663-4733 or Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Inn is co-sponsoring a program on appellate advocacy with the Institute of Judicial Administration on April 13, featuring an impressive cast of panelists (including several of our own members). I’m passing along details about the program below, and am told that clicking through the “Register Now” link will allow you to receive a 50% discount on registration. If you have any questions, you can contact one of our Programs Co-Chairs, Erin Murphy and Kelsi Brown Corkran.
We have been asked to pass along information about a recently posted opening for a Deputy in the Virginia Solicitor General’s Office. It will be a political appointment serving with Virginia's recently re-elected Attorney General, Mark Herring, and new Solicitor General, Toby Heytens (a former member of our Inn).
The American Inns of Court asked that we circulate the attached flyer describing vacancies on their Program Award Committee, which is looking for two new members (an Associate member and a Master member). If you are interested in participating, you can contact Christina Hartle (email@example.com) or use the contact information in the flyer itself.
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is looking to fill a newly created position within his SG area, Deputy Solicitor General.
October is quickly approaching, and the American Inns of Court is excited to begin celebrating Civility Month with our members. Participate in the Civility Month festivities with two exciting opportunities:
The Florida Solicitor General’s Office is currently considering applications for the positions of Deputy Solicitor General and Chief Deputy Solicitor General. The Solicitor General represents the State of Florida in the U.S. Supreme Court and the Florida Supreme Court, presides over civil appeals to which the state is a party, provides legal advice and policy guidance to the Attorney General and her senior leadership, and coordinates the State’s amicus practice as well as its involvement in multistate litigation. The Chief Deputy and five Deputy Solicitors General assist the Solicitor General with all aspects of the work of the Office. Accordingly, they regularly brief and argue cases of exceptional public importance, including constitutional challenges to significant state statutes. Both positions afford a rare opportunity to litigate high-profile cases in state and federal trial and appellate courts, interact with the State’s leading lawyers and policymakers, and collaborate with top appellate attorneys serving in other states and the U.S. Department of Justice.
We are welcoming 19 new members to the Inn, whom I’ve listed below and whom you will also be able to identify by the red dots on their nametags. If you get a chance, please introduce yourself.

New Website (and announcement about Inn dues)
Today is also the unveiling of our newly redesigned website, which you can access at https://www.edwardcokeinn.org/. Sy Damle, the Inn’s Technology Chair, is responsible for the truly impressive new look and new functionality, and we encourage you to explore its offerings. Perhaps most important among those new functions is the fact that you are now able to pay your dues online—and should do so now for the new term. If you have questions, they can be directed to Inn Treasurer Joe Palmore firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tentative Meeting Dates for the Remainder of the Term
Finally, the Executive Board has tentatively set the following dates for the remainder of our meetings for the term.
