Criminal Justice Section Liaison Update

| No Comments

The Criminal Justice Section just held its fall meeting and Forensics Conference at NYU's School of Law. We had over 150 people in attendance to listen to the latest developments in fingerprinting, laboratory protocols, neuro-science, and wrongful convictions. The meeting also included a networking reception on Friday evening.

The Section is currently restructuring its committees and will be bringing back some committees such as the Vehicle and Traffic Committee and the Legislative Committee. Please reach out if you are interested on being on a committee.

The Section is still hard at work getting sealing legislation passed. Currently there are identical bills in the State Senate and Assembly (S5385 and A4026), known as the Second Chance for Ex-Offenders Act, which would permit for the sealing of some non-violent misdemeanors. This legislation would allow for these low level ex-offenders to return to being productive members of society by removing the permanent punishment of criminal conviction.

If you would like more information about the Criminal Justice Section or have any questions about its committees and programs, please feel free to contact Erin Flynn ( or Simone Archer (
