The Coalition welcomes its newest affiliate member organization: The Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County
The Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County is a 250-member organization comprised of both plaintiff and defendant trial lawyers in diverse fields of practice. The Academy pursues serious and sustained discourse among its members and judges to promote professionalism and the highest quality of advocacy before our Courts. Members are dedicated to social justice, innovation in response to changes in our trial practice, the responsibilities of freedom and the importance of trial by jury. The Academy encourages and promotes its members to be responsible and active participants in this association and the legal community and to share generously in service to each other, to our Courts, to the citizens of Allegheny County and beyond. The Academy encourages a close and appropriate relationship between its members and the judges of our Courts, promoting mutual respect, an independent judiciary, and integrity in judicial administration.
“For as long as I can recall, the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County has undertaken great efforts to increase the diversity among our membership. While we continue to make strides, we recognize that much more needs to be done. As part of these ongoing efforts, I am very pleased that the Academy has become an affiliate member of the Pittsburgh Legal, Diversity & Inclusion Coalition to expand our energies and work together to improve DEI throughout Allegheny County.”
