The Trial Lawyers 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 Lawyers 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.
As we work to do our part to keep you all safe and healthy, TLC has canceled all spring and summer courses. The health of our tribe and their families is our highest priority. While we will miss seeing so many of you at the spring and summer TLC programs, our highest calling is to do our part to help protect your safety and security and that of your families. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the scientific community, and at this time we feel confident that we can resume our courses in the fall. Read the story...
