Criminal Law Committee

The Criminal Law Committee is charged with the advancement of the criminal law system in both district and circuit courts, and also coordinates the always-popular Criminal Brown Bag seminar series, which is offered at a discounted rate to all OCBA members. If your practice area includes criminal law, join the committee to network with yours peers and stay up to date on relevant issues in criminal law practice.


The Criminal Law Committee is tasked with identifying and addressing issues pertinent to Oakland County Criminal Practitioners as well as to assist all OCBA members in recognizing criminal aspects in non-criminal practice. In furtherance of this mission, the Committee is responsible for developing and implementing ongoing educational and growth opportunities to increase the standard of practice among OCBA members by providing a venue through which criminal practitioners can meet, discuss and learn from shared experiences.


Committee members meet once a month on the third Wednesday of every month at 5:15 p.m. at the OCBA offices to discuss court operations and legal issues of interest, to exchange articles and new case law, and to review courtroom strategies.
