One of the ones I found has a few members with BU email addresses and no employer/organization listed and another was founded by BU students, so I'm pretty sure they take student members even though I haven't seen any from my school. Bearly Legal and I made a deal to try to join one together just to mitigate the initial awkwardness of not knowing anyone, so hopefully we can find one to take both of us. Although the way you make it sound, that might be a better tactic for Bar Association events. I didn't realize that Inns are so structured, but this is a bit of a relief to me because while I'm good at making small talk in a structured setting like an interview or whatever, I'm terrible at introducing myself to people at big events and it makes me very anxious.Two kind of random questions, if you don't mind. How formal are these events usually (like in terms of dress -- do I need to wear my suit most of the time?)? And how do you find the gender balance to be -- is it very "good ol' boys"? I've been meaning to go to more local Women's Bar events because as a female sometimes settings like that are more welcoming, especially in the legal profession.
This is going to be an incredibly stupid question I'm sure, but what's an Inn and how does one get an invite?
