The Society of Trial Lawyers is a prestigious organization that is limited to only 250 participants. The members are exclusively invited to join; those without an invitation cannot join. The society consists of Chicago’s top lawyers. It is a place where premier trial attorneys can come together in the spirit of fraternity, garnering a loyalty for each other. The club maintains high ethical ideals to make sure trial of cases are lead fairly. Finally, the society promotes stronger relationships among trial lawyers and the judiciary to make sure that justice is served in the jury trial system.
