A former President of the American Association for Justice, Theodore I. Koskoff was widely known for the passion he brought to the practice of law. His unique approaches to a broad range of cases were known to clients and lawyers throughout the country, from the “Dare-to-be-Great” entrepreneur Glen Turner to Lonnie McLucas of the Black Panther Party. Even defense attorney F. Lee Bailey was defended by Ted Koskoff.

Ted was the leading figure in a national drive for certification of specialists in civil and criminal trial advocacy. Chairman and founder of the National Board of Trial Advocacy, he helped determine the standards for trial specialization and, in fact, wrote those standards. His pioneering efforts in the field of legal ethics are reflected in newly developing standards for the legal profession that are more responsive to the needs of both lawyers and the public.

Ted Koskoff’s influence was both as an innovator and as a teacher and lecturer to future leaders of the legal profession. He was the leading spokesman within the profession for continuing education and the highest standards of professionalism and competence. He was also a founder and past President of the Roscoe Pound Foundation, and a founder and former chairman of the ATLA-sponsored National College of Advocacy.

Ted was a primary force behind the establishment of the National Advocacy College educational programs at the University of Southern California, Harvard, Georgetown Law School and Suffolk Law School. He was a true advocate for his fellow man in the Halls of Justice.
