Rynders Inducted into American College of Trial Lawyers
Varnum partner Perrin Rynders was recently inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers. His status as a Fellow was confirmed at the College's recent annual meeting in Philadelphia.
The American College of Trial Lawyers is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada and is widely considered to be the premier professional trial organization in North America. Fellows are chosen strictly by invitation and only after a rigorous, confidential investigation. Fellowship is limited to one percent of the lawyers in any individual State or Province. In practice, far less than one percent ever qualifies for this honor.
Fellowship is limited to those lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality.
The American College of Trial Attorneys maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on important legal issues relating to its mission. The College strongly supports the independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College serves its mission through the work of the 33 general committees and 61 state and province committees.
