Its membership is composed of civil lawyers, criminal lawyers, plaintiffs’ lawyers, defendants’ lawyers, public interest lawyers, and state and federal prosecutors and defenders. Members of the College undergo a thorough vetting process before being invited for inclusion. The College’s three-fold mission is to maintain and improve the standards of trial practice; the administration of justice; and the ethics of the profession. For more information, visit www.actl.com.
