Kiefer received his undergraduate degree from Purdue University and his Doctor of Jurisprudence, with honors, from Indiana University School of Law.
According to ACTL President Robert L. Byman, “Fellowship is limited to one per cent of the lawyers in any individual State, to those lawyers who have distinguished themselves in trial practice for at least 15 years, not only as skilled trial lawyers who are recognized by judges and practitioners as the very best in their states or provinces, but as persons whose ethics, moral standards, collegiality, and community standing are exemplary.”
Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship is extended to experienced trial lawyers by invitation only following careful investigation. There are currently over five thousand members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows and Honorary Fellows.
