The Litigation Section aims to help members become better lawyers, to succeed in their careers, and to become engaged and informed about issues important to our nation’s litigation community. The committees of the Section serve these goals through their newsletters and webpages, which are the primary ways that the Section interacts with its members. Each year, the Section’s committees generate hundreds of unique pieces of content that help our members further develop as lawyers, and better serve their clients and our nation’s judicial systems.
Of course, the content produced by the Section’s committees does not exist in a vacuum. Online sources of content aimed at lawyers seem to multiply overnight, and many of them deliver news from the previous day. These competitive sources of content present challenges for our committee newsletters and webpages, which rely on volunteer authors and editors, because legal developments are often old news by the time our committees produce and publish content about them.
To compete and prevail, we must focus on what makes the Section’s content unique. The ABA Litigation Section represents perhaps the largest collection of highly experienced trial lawyers in the world, and the collective experience of our members in the practice of litigation is simply unmatched. Our members are an incredible source of incomparable content. The key is making sure that the Section’s content leverages the best that our committees have to offer.
