Membership provides numerous benefits, including access to a network of hundreds of experienced criminal practitioners who provide an invaluable source of guidance and mentoring; access to periodic lectures and seminars featuring prominent and informative criminal practitioners; and access to the ACDL-NJ Listserv and the ACDL-NJ Brief Bank, where ACDL-NJ members can exchange information, share sample pleadings and briefs, and receive thorough and timely updates on New Jersey criminal case law.
