Charles Brown
    Charles Brown was named recently a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.
    The induction ceremony at which Brown became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of 1,020 during the recent 2006 Annual Meeting of the College in London, England.
    Founded in 1950, the college is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the college is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years trial experience before they can be considered for fellowship.
    Membership in the college cannot exceed 1 percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,500 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.
    The college strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to fellowship in the college from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute accused of crime and those who defend them. The college is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
    Brown is a partner in the firm of Brown, Rountree and Stewart and has been practicing in this city for 40 years. The newly inducted fellow is an alumna of the University of Georgia School of Law.
