An Overview of the Civil Justice System

This “White Paper” is a collaborative effort of numerous and diverse segments of the United States Civil Trial Bar, collectively known as the “American Civil Trial Bar Roundtable.” The Roundtable over several years fostered and encouraged frank and open discussion and dialogue on the status of the United States civil justice system. The paper is not intended to be an end, but a beginning, of continuing and evolving dialogue with the ultimate goal being the improvement of the civil justice system as the 21st century unfolds.
