ACDL-NJ Brief Bank and Listserv

The ACDL-NJ Brief Bank and the ACDL-NJ's award-winning Listserv are useful resources for New Jersey criminal defense attorneys, available exclusively to ACDL-NJ members.

Members only need follow the directions below if they want to (a) access the Brief Bank, (b) browse/search archived listserv messages, or (c) respond to listserv messages via the website rather than by email (e.g. for those who receive a digest/summary email).

4.     Use your new Google account (i.e., the email listed for you on the Member Roster and the password for the new Google account you created with that email address) to sign in to the ACDL-NJ Brief Bank or ACDL-NJ Listserv archive below. If you get a message that you do not have access when you try to log in, click on the link to ask to join the group, and you should be able to log in once the ACDL-NJ administrator approves your join request.
