It facilitates the exchange of information, ideas, techniques, and court rulings about civil defense litigation so that the skills of civil defense lawyers are improved. It also encourages high standards of trial practice, trial conduct, and courtroom manners. Finally, it supports improving the adversary system of jurisprudence in Alabama courts by eliminating court congestion and unnecessary delays.
