PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

  
T
he American College of Trial Lawyers, founded in 1950, recognizes the very best of the courtroom bars of the United States and Canada.  The College’s Fellows are chosen strictly by invitation and only after rigorous investigation.  Fellowship is limited to one per cent of the lawyers in any individual State, to those lawyers who have distinguished themselves in trial practice for at least 15 years, not only as skilled trial lawyers who are recognized by judges and practitioners as the very best in their states or provinces, but as persons whose ethics, moral standards, collegiality, and community standing are exemplary.
