Chair’s Counsel

By Lucian E. Dervan

As I write this column, the Criminal Justice Section has just completed an incredibly successful 11th Annual Fall Institute. This year’s conference, which occurred on November 1–2, 2018 in Washington, DC, focused on highlighting the important work of our Section’s committees, initiatives, and task forces. Our almost 50 committees work diligently throughout the year addressing issues ranging from law enforcement to military justice, sentencing to mental health, and much more. We also have a number of initiatives and task forces examining pressing and developing issues and creating policies and recommendations to assist the criminal justice community in determining how best to proceed. While it was impossible during the two day Institute to showcase all of the amazing work being done, the panels that were presented taught us much about the diversity of interests and projects within our Section.
