Spotlight: Jim Cowles new member of Serjeants Inn
Congratulations to Jim Cowles as a new member of the 'Serjeants' Inn".
When the "Serjeants' Inn" existed in the English Inns of Court system, it consisted of those barristers who had distinguished themselves by their service to their profession and accomplishments as barristers. Appointment to the Sergent's Inn was the honorary equivalent to knighthood. It was from the Serjeants' Inn that most high court judges were chosen. The Inns of Court in Dallas and Fort Worth established a Serjeants' Inn to honor certain esteemed members for long and meritorious service to the Inns of Court and to the legal profession. Each of the Inns in Dallas and Fort Worth is ordinarily allowed to nominate one member each year and these nominations are announced at the joint Inns of Court meeting in January.
The joint meeting was held last night and the nomination by the Higginboham Inn of Court to appoint Jim Cowles to become a new member of this prestigious Serjeants Inn was approved.
