John Hueston Admitted to American College of Trial Lawyers


John C. Hueston of Irell & Manella LLP has been inducted as a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.

Los Angeles (I-Newswire) October 28, 2013 - John C. Hueston of Irell & Manella LLP has been inducted as a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. The induction ceremony took place on Oct. 26, 2013 during the 2013 Annual Meeting of the college in San Francisco.

Founded in 1950, the college is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the college is extended by invitation only and only 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. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for fellowship.

Membership in the college cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,789 members in the United States and Canada, including active fellows, emeritus fellows, judicial fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and honorary fellows. The college strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to fellowship in the college from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute accused of crime and those who defend them. The college is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

A partner of Irell & Manella LLP, Hueston serves as chair of the Business Trial and Crisis Management practice. A former lead prosecutor for the Enron trial of Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, he is an alumnus of Yale Law School and has been practicing law for more than 20 years.
