Congratulations to long-time friend and colleague, John Sloan on his recent election to the presidency of the most renowned trial lawyers’ organization in the country. As only the 3rd attorney to fill this leadership role in the college’s 20+ year history, Mr. Sloan attended the Trial Lawyers College as a student in 1998 and recalls his experience:
I came to the Trial Lawyer’s College in 1998 with the hope that I could become a better lawyer. I did not fully understand the profound impact on my life that would be sparked from that one month at the Ranch. I believe that TLC has made me a better lawyer and a better person.
