MISSION STATEMENT: The Trial Lawyer's College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are
committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals; the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression.
In all of its activities, the Trial Lawyer's College will foster and nourish an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation.
Trial lawyers can graduate from the Trial Lawyer's College through its 3-week program, or by attending 7 Regional Seminars on each trial skill. Each path has different pros and cons for the individual lawyer, but either way, graduates emerge as better advocates for their clients, better human beings, and better prepared to WIN their next trials.
