CDL is proud to be affiliated with the Defense Research Institute (DRI), the international membership organization of all lawyers involved in the defense of civil litigation. Headquartered in Chicago, DRI is the largest international membership organization of attorneys defending the interests of business and individuals in civil litigation.
CDL is considered an SLDO (State and Local Defense Orgnaization) within the DRI structure. We have a council representative chosen from the ranks of CDL/DRI joint members. Additionally we support a regional representative (for Canada) on the DRI board of directors.
CDL members are encouraged to explore the many educational and networking opportunities offered through DRI membership. Visit www.dri.org for more information.
