Members of The Inn of Court of Acadiana, The John M. Duhe, Jr. Inn of Court and The Inn on the Teche gathered for the Joint Inns of Court Social at Trynd. The elegant event allowed the judges, lawyers and summer clerks for the three inns to meet and mingle over cocktails and nibblies, including massive boiled shrimp, fresh salmon, brushcetta topped with tomatoes and garlic, and tomato-mozzarella skewers. Afterwards, guests got their legal education credits with a lively presentation from the Acadiana Inn’s Team 4, which encored a performance of “A Day in the Legal Life of the Beatles: It’s Been a Hard Day’s Night!” Talented legal eagles from the Acadiana and Duhe Inns donned their mop-tops and grabbed their instruments to play some “remixed” Beatles tunes for the capacity crowd. Party On!
