On October 19, 2013, Evan T. Miller attended the American Inns of Court’s Celebration of Excellence, an event held annually at the Supreme Court of the United States. The evening honored individuals who contributed their time, energy, and resources to furthering the ideals of the American Inns of Court (“AIC”). The Honorable Clarence Thomas hosted this year’s Celebration of Excellence.
Evan was selected to attend the event on behalf of the Delaware Bankruptcy Inn of Court (“DBIC”), of which he is an executive board member. The DBIC is located in Wilmington, Delaware and is open to all members of the Delaware Bar who practice in the areas of commercial and consumer bankruptcy law. The DBIC has won multiple awards throughout its existence, including this year’s “Platinum” designation for meeting the AIC’s high standards of excellence.
The AIC is one of the fastest growing legal organizations in the country. Its mission is to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills. Today, there are more than 28,000 judges and lawyers actively participating in an Inn of Court and over 80,000 judges and lawyers who are alumni of an Inn. There are also more than 150 accredited law schools participating with one or more Inns in some capacity.
Evan, a bankruptcy associate with Bayard since 2009, remains active on committees in several other professional associations, including the Federal Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Delaware State Bar Association, and the Philadelphia Bar Association.
