Overview

The Criminal Law Section is the home for state and federal prosecutors, public defenders, and private bar defense attorneys representing clients in the criminal justice system. Members discuss public policy issues impacting the practice, including state legislation and changes in court rules and procedures. The Section also creates educational programming to keep members updated on new developments and best practices.

Criminal Justice

We believe that the primary concern of a criminal justice system should be promoting public safety and ensuring fair treatment for all people. We have a long history of advocating for issues related to sentencing, reentry and parole, and improving the accuracy and reliability of the criminal justice system.
