Nanci L. Clarence was re-appointed as Chair of the American College of Trial Lawyers’ Federal Criminal Procedure Committee for 2013-14.  The purpose of this national committee is to “monitor the operation of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and other federal criminal procedural developments generally, to determine the adequacy of the operation of the rules and procedures in federal criminal cases, to evaluate proposed changes, and to make recommendations with regards to these matters.”

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 America.  Fellowship to the College is extended only by invitation, after careful investigation, to those experienced trial 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.  Although there are currently more than 5,700 Fellows across the U.S. and Canada, membership can never be more than 1%of the total lawyer population of any state or province.
