Jenner & Block Partner Robert L. Byman is profiled in the Spring 2014 edition of The Journal, the publication of the American College of Trial Lawyers.  Inducted as ACTL president last October, Bob is featured on the cover of the magazine with his wife, Jane.  Titled “Riding The Wave: A Profile of Robert L. Byman President of The American College of Trial Lawyers,” the profile traces Bob’s career from his early mentors – Prentice Marshall, Al Metz and Jerry Solovy – to his most fulfilling cases: helping exonerate two innocent men.  Bob discusses his vision for the ACTL presidency: being the “face” of the College rather than its “follow-me” leader.  And he discusses his personal life, including how he met Jane at the same bar where her parents met.   The profile mentions his hobbies of art and motorcycles but concludes that “his prized possessions are Jane and their family.”
