The President’s message for the American College of Trial Lawyers describes this outstanding organization of select American and Canadian trial lawyers well:

“The American College of Trial Lawyers, founded in 1950, recognizes the very best of the trial bars of the United States and Canada. The College’s Fellows are chosen strictly by invitation and only after a rigorous, confidential investigation. Fellowship is limited to one percent of the lawyers in any individual State or Province. In practice, far less than one percent ever qualifies for this honor. Personal integrity, ethics, collegiality and community standing are also key factors in evaluating lawyers for Fellowship. Fellowship is limited to those lawyers who have shown themselves to be not only skilled trial lawyers but who are also recognized by the lawyers they handle cases with and against and the judge before whom they practice as among the very best in their jurisdiction.”
