40 Under 40 Requirements and Mission
Membership is exclusively offered to trial lawyers who practice civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law. The National Trial Lawyers website informs that “Invitees must exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young lawyer under the age of 40.”
The purpose of a trial lawyer is to help the powerless by holding corporations responsible. The mission of the 40 Under 40 organization is centered on cultivating a networking opportunity for the finest young trial lawyers in America. These attorneys are expected to seek justice through their progressive ideas. The organization is also invested in protecting the right to trial by jury in an unbiased court. These values are similar to the Simmons Hanly Conroy mission to ensure its clients have the right to a strong voice in court.
