ELITE TRIAL LAWYERS

The Academy is a group of truly elite trial lawyers representing both sides of the Bar:  prosecutors and defense lawyers in criminal cases, and plaintiffs' and defense counsel in civil litigation (including business and personal injury cases).  While the majority of the Fellows come from the U.S., the Academy includes lawyers from more than 30 countries.  Fellowship is by invitation only, and trial lawyers are invited to become Fellows only after an extremely careful vetting process.

 

LIMITED MEMBERSHIP

As to U.S. Fellows, the Academy's bylaws limit Fellowship to 500 active trial lawyers under the age of 70.  Upon reaching the age of 70, a Fellow retains all of his or her rights and privileges but is no longer counted against the cap of 500.  This provision assures that each year there will be openings for first-rate nominees to enter the Fellowship.

 INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE IN ISRAEL 

Our International Collaboratives are a way to advance the visibility of the IATL internationally and to increase our membership internationally.  Given these goals, the Collaborative in Israel was a resounding success. Our Israeli Fellows most certainly felt welcomed into the Academy and
were impressed with the number of Fellows and guests who traveled to Israel to meet them.  

Harvey Kurzweil, Howard Scher, Linda Scher and Bobbie Pichini worked hard to coordinate the most recent Collaborative – a United States/Israeli Symposium held at the Tel Aviv University Buchmann Law School on November 11, 2014.  Read More
