FEBRUARY 5, 2012, St. Louis, Missouri… Glenn E. Davis, Chair of Gallop’s Litigation Department, has been elected Vice Chair of the Academy of Antitrust Law of the Litigation Counsel of America™ (LCA).
Based in New York, the Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society, with membership limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of all American lawyers. The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, to reflect the new face of the American bar by recognizing excellence among all segments of American litigation and trial counsel. LCA’s Academy of Antitrust Law is one of a limited number of institutes formed by LCA Fellows to facilitate independent study, education and practice development under the auspices of the society and ICA primary by-laws.
The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced, and highly qualified lawyers, to provide a forum for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide outstanding resources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.
The Academy of Antitrust Law will facilitate advanced study of antitrust law and economic issues, provide a unique forum for members across the country to interact and exchange best practices, and offer opportunities for scholarly writing on antitrust litigation, advocacy, compliance, and policy topics. The Academy already includes leading antitrust lawyers from around the country and a well-known staff counsel from the Federal Trade Commission.
