NYSACDL Mission

NYSACDL is dedicated to protecting the rights of criminal defendants through a strong, unified, and well-trained criminal defense bar.  Our guiding principle is that vigorous defense is the strongest bulwark against error and injustice in the criminal justice system.  In an era when the United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world, we expand on the question most often posed to our members and ask “how can we defend those people most effectively?”

 

NYSACDL's Goals:


  • Serve as a leader and partner in advancing humane criminal justice policy and legislation.
  • Promote the rights of criminal defendants through the adoption of policy positions, targeted concerted action, and the submission of amicus briefs on issues of significance to the fair administration of criminal justice and the protection of civil liberties.
  • Provide a forum for our members to exchange ideas and information,with a particular emphasis on mentoring those who are new to the profession.
    • Defend our members in professional emergencies and honor their achievements through articles on our website and in Atticus, and awards at our annual dinner.
