Comprising nearly 500 Maryland prosecutors, private criminal defense attorneys, public defenders, law professors, appellate and trial judges, and court administrators, the Criminal Law & Practice Section serves “to stimulate interest of the members of the Maryland Bar in the administration of criminal justice and to seek improvements and reforms in the criminal law.”
In addition to sponsoring frequent educational programs, the Section publishes a newsletter about statutory and case law developments, and other news of interest to criminal law practitioners. It also advises the MSBA Board of Governors on criminal justice issues and provides policy perspectives to the Maryland General Assembly and criminal justice agencies and groups.
