About the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL)
With a mission to enhance trial practice and the administration of justice, the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) was established in 1950. Comprised of accomplished trial lawyers in North America, it is dedicated to professionalism, integrity, and justice. ACTL provides educational resources to enhance trial lawyers’ skills and upholds the highest ethical standards.
Being inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers is a significant achievement for any lawyer. It is an invitation-only fellowship that recognizes exceptional trial lawyers who display the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, and collegiality.
The ACTL has stringent membership criteria that ensure only the most qualified trial lawyers are accepted into its prestigious ranks. To be considered for Fellowship, individuals must meet the following criteria:
- Unquestionable Expertise: Prospective members must unquestionably demonstrate their exceptional qualifications as trial lawyers, recognized as the best in their respective state or province.
- Ethical Excellence: High ethical and moral standards are a prerequisite, with a strong emphasis on maintaining an excellent character throughout their legal career.
- Extensive Trial Experience: Membership requires a minimum of 15 years of active engagement in trial work, signifying a substantial commitment to the field.
- Geographic Neutrality: Geographic distribution does not play a role in acceptance; Fellows are not concentrated in metropolitan areas, nor are they denied to those in rural regions. This ensures a fair and diverse representation.
- Non-Discrimination: The College upholds a strict non-discrimination policy, ensuring that qualified individuals are not excluded from consideration or denied Fellowship based on factors such as race, sex, religion, or national origin.
These comprehensive criteria uphold the College’s commitment to maintaining a select membership of top-tier trial lawyers while promoting inclusivity and fairness in the selection process.
