Criminal laws are constantly evolving. New technology and changing social attitudes lead to new statutes and regulations. The United States Supreme Court and other high courts make rulings that profoundly impact constitutional rights.
These rights are closely connected with the investigation and prosecution of individuals suspected of committing a crime.
To keep up with the constant evolution of criminal law, lawyers who represent the accused can join professional organizations for criminal defense attorneys.
These organizations provide access to publications, invitations to quality continuing legal education (CLE) seminars and networking opportunities. These organizations often allow the attorneys to present a more unified voice to legislative bodies on issues that impact the profession.
Lawyer Legion is an independent project not affiliated with any legal associations. The logo for each of these groups is displayed simply as a visual indicator to help users identify each group. Below you will find a list of some of the most well-known criminal defense lawyers associations in the United States.
