Elizabeth White has been selected to join the Chester Bedell Inn of Court as a Master. The American Inns of Court, modeled after their English counterparts, were implemented to promote professionalism, ethical conduct and competent advocacy among lawyers. The Chester Bedell Inn of Court was the first Inn established in Florida and the fourteenth in the nation. For the past three years, it has achieved platinum status, the highest level of recognition available.
Masters of the Bench are judges, experienced attorneys and law professors. Participation as a Master of the Inns of the Court is by invitation only. A Master is an attorney who typically has more than 20 years experience and a demonstrated dedication to ethics, professionalism and legal excellence. Masters mentor less experienced lawyers and law students in the highest standards of the legal profession. Ms. White's partner, William Sheppard, is a Master Emeritus.
