Chair's Letter

I am delighted to welcome you to the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section! TIPS is a unique organization that links plaintiff and defense attorneys with corporate, in-house counsel and insurers, all eager to maintain and improve the American civil justice system.

TIPS is made up of over 30 general committees, each focused on a substantive practice area and each at the forefront of industry specific issues.  Our newest committees, including Cannabis Law and Policy, Women Trial Lawyers, and Cybersecurity and Data Privacy, are superb ways for members to get involved with TIPS.  TIPS also publishes a number of excellent books and periodicals, all devoted to sharing up-to-date information from industry leaders.  I invite you to explore all the Section has to offer and the many ways to get involved.

The annual TIPS Section Conference is our most exciting event and this year will be no different.  From

April 29 to May 3, 2020, TIPS will be partnering with the ABA's Young Lawyer Division to bring programming specifically designed for young attorneys to Nashville.  From cutting-edge CLEs to unique social events, mark your calendars for what is sure to be a wonderful conference.

If you are not currently a TIPS member, I urge you to join.  For online access, click here or email or call our Membership Associate, Jeane Emily DuBose at (312) 988-5673 with any questions.  If you're eager to get involved in this wonderful Section, please feel free to reach out.  There is a home for you in TIPS.

Best regards,

Thea Capone, Chair

ABA Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section
