Criminal Law Section

The 2013/2014 CBA Section Chair:  Hon. Steven L. Bernard

CBA Staff Liaison: Amy Sreenen, asreenen@cobar.org

Addresses problems and interests of lawyers handling criminal cases. This is accomplished by bringing together a balanced, cooperative group of judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys from private practice, public defenders, and academic representatives from our law schools. The section analyzes criminal justice bills pending in the Colorado legislature and makes recommendations on those bills to the CBA Board of Governors, where appropriate. It is also concerned with court rules and procedures. It has sponsored law student research projects in areas of current interest to criminal law practitioners and occasionally proposes new legislation. It has sponsored a regular column on current criminal law issues in The Colorado Lawyer and a criminal law seminar each spring in conjunction with Continuing Legal Education in Colorado, Inc.
