MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL), one of the premier professional organizations composed of preeminent trial lawyers from the U.S. and Canada, has elected five new members to its Board of Regents including Steptoe & Johnson CEO Susan S. Brewer.

“To be chosen by my peers as a Regent is truly an honor,” said Brewer.  “I will have the privilege of working with the state committees of West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  I have many friends and colleagues in these states already but serving the College as a Regent will be even more enriching.”

The management of the College’s affairs is vested in a board of regents, consisting of five officers and 15 regents. The Regents are elected for four-year terms and have an assigned jurisdiction of states and/or provinces, as well as liaison responsibility for a number of general committees. The Executive Committee conducts the business of the College between board meetings.      

The American College of Trial Lawyers is widely considered to be the premier professional trial organization in North America. Founded in 1950, the College is an invitation only fellowship. The College thoroughly investigates each nominee for admission and selects only those who have demonstrated the very highest standards of trial advocacy, ethical conduct, integrity, professionalism, and collegiality. The College 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.
