Enright given lifetime achievement award by Inns of Court

San Diego's five American Inns of Court recently honored Judge William Enright with its inaugural lifetime achievement award for his efforts in bringing the American Inns of Court movement to San Diego.

The Inns also named the award “The Honorable William B. Enright Lifetime Achievement Award.”

The first Inn formed in San Diego was the Louis M. Welsh Inn of Court in 1984. Four other Inns were later formed: the William B. Enright Inn of Court, the J. Clifford Wallace Inn of Court, the William L. Todd, Jr. Inn of Court, and the Fiorenzo V. Lopardo Inn of Court.

The Americans Inns of Court’s core mission is to increase civility and professionalism in the practice of law.

Enright was recognized during the 2013 Joint American Inns of Court Annual Dinner last month. The keynote speaker at the dinner was constitutional law expert Kathleen M. Sullivan, former dean of Stanford Law School and Harvard Law School professor.

She is a named partner at Quinn, Emanuel, Urquhart, and Sullivan LLP, and is the chair of its national appellate practice. Her keynote address was entitled “Trends in the Roberts Court.”

Higgs Fletcher & Mack partner Susan M. Hack is the current president of the Enright Inn of Court and served as the dinner’s emcee with nearly 300 attorneys and judges from the five Inns in attendance.
