Litigation attorney Amy Wooten has been elected as Treasurer of the Chief Justice Susie M. Sharp Inn of Court ("Inn").
Founded in 1993 under the leadership of Chief Justice Burley Mitchell, the Inn is named after Chief Justice Susie Marshall Sharp, who served as the first female Associate and Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. The Inn is comprised of prominent Triangle judges and attorneys and serves Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties. Membership is exclusive. Attorneys must be nominated before they can apply for membership.
The Inn's objective is to "promote and enhance professionalism in all disciplines within the [North Carolina State] Bar by creating a diverse, collegial, and congenial association of skilled attorneys dedicated to sharing their philosophies, knowledge, and experiences and willing to contribute to members’ continuing education through tutorials on timely subjects," according to its website.
"It's an honor to be a member of an organization steeped in rich history that is focused on cultivating professional and personal growth through the sharing of collective experiences in the legal profession. It's an even greater privilege to be able to serve it," remarked Amy. "I look forward to doing so as the Inn's Treasurer."
