OTLA has litigation sections for Medical Malpractice and Long Term Disability (LTD). It also has a New Lawyers Division (NLD), a Women’s Caucus and a Law Clerks section. All of these groups have a separate listserve for networking and discussion, lunch meetings at major conferences, roundtables, and specialized continuing legal education (CLE) events.
All law clerks, new lawyers (under 10 years in practice) and all women lawyers, are automatically members of their respective section and can sign up to participate on those listserves.
To become a member of a litigation section requires an additional yearly payment and certification of plaintiff work in these areas.
For more information on membership in these specialized sections, please contact OTLA.
Committees and Task Groups
Consider becoming involved in an ongoing or a time-limited activity that will contribute your viewpoint and knowledge to enrich OTLA and which will help you to understand how OTLA operates and what your volunteer commitment really means to strengthening this association.
In 2009, OTLA reorganized the governance of the organization to ensure accountability to members and action on all areas of OTLA’s Strategic Directions. There are seven major Committees of the Board, and numerous ongoing and ad hoc task groups related to each of the committees that undertake the work of OTLA each year. Each committee and task group is led by a Board member and most all of them (except for a few like the Executive Committee) are open to and welcome participation by regular OTLA members as well as Board members.
If you would like to get involved with any of these committees and task groups, please contact OTLA.
