Honourary Chair

Ties and Scarves

Celebrate your Fellowship in the American College of Trial Lawyers by wearing a College-themed tie or scarf.  The compelling "hermit and horse" design was created by Former Regent John S. Siffert, and evokes the Induction Charge read to all Fellows:

"We know that your attainment of the front ranks of the bar has not been without its costs, and we recognize that our specialty exacts much of those who win its favor.  Truly, we are, in Lord Eldon's words, the hermit and the horse."

Articles are sold at cost with a small increment going entirely to the Foundation.
