The Craven-Everett American Inn of Court is primarily composed of members of the Wake and Durham County Bars. It was originally founded as the Braxton Craven American Inn of Court in 1993. The mission of the American Inns of Court is to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills. Campbell Law has served as the official sponsor and host of the Inn since the spring of 2016.

Everett who was the Chief Judge of the U.S. Military Court of Appeals.
