Mission: The Committee focuses on cooperation of judges, lawyers, court personnel, local news reporters, police officers and local communities. The Committee emphasizes fairness, elimination of implicit bias, citizen involvement in jury duty and public education about the role of courts and law enforcement in democracy. Public safety, juror rights and responsibilities and freedom of the press are all part of this committee’s educational events and publications.
Expectations: The Committee collaborates with courts, media contacts and community leaders across America to create webinars, articles and public events aimed at educating the judiciary and the public about issues in criminal justice and fair representation in the legal system and the media
