IADC Global Connection: For Law. for Life


Haston, Tripp, Defense Counsel Journal


The great Nelson Mandela once said, "There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. " Members of the IADC are not known for "playing small" and enjoy a Global Connection that facilitates a more rewarding legal practice and life for themselves and their families. With this year's theme - IADC Global Connection: For Law. For Life. - we intend to further enhance the unique value of membership with events on each of our membership's five continents.

Roughly a decade ago, Thomas Friedman authored The World is Flat. His book's premise - that rapidly evolving technology allowed greater economic and social opportunity for those connected globally - is truer today than ever before. The IADC Global Connection offers its members that very set of opportunities contemplated by Friedman. When your client needs an attorney in Asia, Australia, Europe, South America or North America, you have reliable counsel to provide them with your peer members. Similarly, when your peer members need reliable counsel in your hometown, your membership provides you an opportunity to serve new and different clients in need. Together with the cutting edge continuing legal education offered in our various forums, this is the IADC Global Connection: For Law at work.

My family and I have personally enjoyed spending time in the homes and hometowns of our fellow IADC friends throughout North America, England, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Belgium and China. These friendships and the experiences they have offered have greatly enriched the lives of my family and represent the IADC Global Connection: For Life at work.

The IADC's vibrant mix of leading-edge ideas, spectacular social events and world-class members and families were on full display at our Annual Meeting in Vienna, Austria in July and served as a terrific foundation for the year ahead. Like Vienna, our programming and events spoke to past, present and future. Ambassador Jack Matlock, the last U.S. Ambassador to the U.S.S.R., served as a witness to history and shared his perspective for our benefit. Austria's Justice Minister Wolfgang Brandstetter shared his views with our members at our Austrian Theme Party. Professor Richard Susskind provided an insightful presentation on the future of legal practice and how technology is rapidly changing the delivery of legal services, which he expands upon in this issue of the DCJ. Finally, and most spectacularly, our closing Gala at the Hofburg Imperial Palace will not be forgotten by any of our member attendees. Many thanks to our Viennese members Daniela Karollus-Bruner and Bernhard Hainz for arranging to have the world-famous opera singer, Michael Schade, perform. …
