The American College of Trial Lawyers – Meets at the Annual Spring Meeting

The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACL) is an organization devoted to providing quality legal assistance to individuals and law firms who are accused of a variety of criminal acts. Established in 1950, the College maintains and promotes the integrity of the legal profession, as well as the development of our legal system. The College is composed of two divisions: the Criminal Justice Section and the Legal Services Section. Both of these divisions work closely with national leadership to ensure that all lawyers meeting the requirements of their areas of specialization are serving the needs of their clients in an effective manner. The College also sponsors a number of conferences, seminars and educational programs to enhance professional development among its members.

The American College of Trial Lawyers has branches in several cities throughout the north America. In Detroit, Michigan, one can find the Detroit Lateral Lawyer, which is an offshoot of the Detroit Bar Association. In New York City, you can find the New York County District Attorney’s Office, which is an affiliate of the ACL. In Chicago, Illinois, one can find the Chicago Criminal Justice Center, which is an offshoot of the ACL.

One of the primary objectives of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACDL) is to institute an ethical code of conduct for its members. The primary guideline for the ethical conduct of this legal profession is the observance of the code of Professional Responsibility, which requires lawyers to be diligent in their observance of these rules. This code also requires lawyers to demonstrate a genuine concern for their clients by assisting them in the preparation of accurate and timely legal documents and opinions. Furthermore, the code requires trial lawyers to demonstrate a permanence, reliability and integrity in the conduct of all their legal proceedings.

All American College of Trial Lawyers also holds an annual meeting, which is called the Annual Meeting. At this meeting, different areas of the practice are discussed. The topics vary, but at the recent meeting, most participants discussed the issues surrounding mergers and acquisitions, client compensation, landlord-tenant and landlord-tenant relations and litigants’ rights. The College also tries to maintain a long-standing relationship with the rest of the nation, which it believes is vital to the success of its members. The association also tries to educate the next generation of north American criminal lawyers.

At this point, it is worth mentioning that the ACDL boasts a membership of one hundred and forty-two attorneys, from across the country. Out of this one hundred and forty-two member attorneys, sixty-three are practicing trial lawyers. While the proportion of associates practicing law in general is one percent, the number practicing in the federal courts is much higher at fifteen percent. Although one cannot attribute the higher ratio of associates to the number of felony charges that are brought against their fellow associates, it would appear that the larger number of cases that are brought against associates is a factor in the higher percentage of associates practicing pro Bono, or for no pay, at least in federal courts.

During their meeting in April of this year, the American College of Trial Lawyers also considered amending its bylaws to eliminate the requirement that all associates must be lawyers. According to the present bylaws, if any associate can show that he has specialized experience in a field other than his area of expertise, such as paralegals, clerks, social workers, financial planners, and other similar types of professionals, then he may become a member of this organization. Many states have already adopted similar by-laws. According to the lawyers at this meeting, they believe that the time has come when the association should be able to admit attorneys who are not all lawyers. This would allow the association to expand its membership base, thus providing it with a larger base of practitioners, who are willing to give the organization its attention and devote their time and energy to it.
