Why Support TLC

Our Mission

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, 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.

We do not offer training for those lawyers who represent government, corporations or large business interests.



Trial Lawyers College is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization funded entirely by its students, alumni and individual supporters. Contributions are tax-deductible. In order to ensure that we are not compromised in our mission to train and educate lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals, the College accepts no funds from federal or state agencies or corporations. Covid-relief assistance excepted.

LEARN MORE WAYS TO SUPPORT TLC

Give a Scholarship

At the Trial Lawyers College, the methods taught to trial lawyers benefit all those who believe in justice. We treat the TLC Scholarship Fund as a 'Pay It Forward' program, where donors help another student learn from TLC, with the hope that they will pass on the gift to others in the future. It's an honor for donors to support fellow trial lawyers and ensure the magic of TLC continues to impact lives.
