Defense Counsel Journal
The Defense Counsel Journal is a forum for the publication of topical and scholarly writings on the law, its development and reform, and on the practice of law, particularly from the viewpoint of the practitioner and litigator in the civil defense and insurance fields.
The International Association of Defense Counsel is the oldest international association of lawyers representing corporations and insurers. Its activities benefit the approximately 2,500 invitation-only, peer-reviewed members and their clients through networking, educational and professional opportunities as well as benefiting the civil justice system and the legal profession. The IADC takes a leadership role in many areas of legal reform and professional development.
Founded in 1920, the IADC’s membership comprises the world’s leading corporate and insurance lawyers including partners in large and small law firms, senior counsel in corporate law departments and insurance executives. They engage in the practice and management of law involving the defense, prosecution and resolution of claims affecting the interest of corporations and insurers. The Association maintains a comprehensive list of publications and training programs, including the quarterly Defense Counsel Journal. It provides educational offerings including its Midyear and Annual Meetings, Regional Meetings, the Trial Academy, Satellite Trial Academies, the Corporate Counsel College, International Corporate Counsel College, the Forum on Advanced Litigation Strategies, and the Professional Liability Roundtable. The IADC founded the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and co-founded Lawyers for Civil Justice.
