Welcome to the Original Trial Lawyers College

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.


Trial Lawyers College Statement of Support for Black Lives Matter

The Trial Lawyers College supports the millions of citizens who are protesting the most recent murder of another African-American person, George Floyd, by a police state that too often demonstrates racial violence resulting in serious injury or death. Protests and marches have previously occurred when police have abused their power, to the injury, incarceration and death of people of color; but the present protests are far more extensive and lasting longer. Previous protests resulted in very little change. Now, finally, the time is ripe for much-needed change.

January and February 2021 Courses Moved to Virtual Setting

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the TLC Board of Directors has elected to move the Voir Dire CLE seminars scheduled for January and February 2021 to the Zoom virtual platform. We continue to prepare for a return to in-person seminars in March, provided we can maintain compliance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for COVID-19 to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of participants and their family members.
