Citadel Board of Visitors member inducted into American College of Trial Lawyers

American College of Trial Lawyers

Stanley Myers, ’98, a member of The Citadel Board of Visitors, is now a fellow in a preeminent, nationally recognized organization for lawyers.

The American College of Trial Lawyers officially inducted Myers in September, during a meeting in Rome, Italy.

Fellowship in the ACTL is extended by invitation only, after careful investigation, to 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.

Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

“I am completely humbled,” said Myers. “I had no idea I was being considered as a Fellowship candidate. It is especially meaningful to me that the judges and colleagues I’ve collaborated with over the years had such kind things to say about our work together.”
