About the Litigation Section

It is the mission of the DSBA’s Litigation Section to promote and advance the interests of attorneys and the judiciary in the litigation of civil matters, consistent with DSBA principles. The Section strives to: (i) enhance communication between the bench and the bar; (ii) promote the professional development and interests of its members; (iii) improve its members’ public service in advancing civil matters in this State; and (iv) to serve the community in which its members live and practice. In seeking to promote a common meeting ground for all attorneys who represent litigants in this State, the Section promotes and enhances communication by and between its members in ways that both enrich their professional careers and foster professionalism and camaraderie.
