The Lawyers Committee of the National Center for State Courts provides an opportunity for the leaders of the nation’s preeminent law firms to partner with the NCSC in building public understanding of the need for a strong and independent judiciary. Members participate in dialogues with state chief justices and state court leaders on judicial reform issues, and provide valuable input on NCSC activities in a range of areas from jury reform to judicial independence.
Joining NCSC’s Lawyers Committee allows attorneys to be directly involved with the organization created to improve the state courts. It is a practical way to advance the cause of good government on a national level and satisfy one’s personal and professional responsibility as an officer of the court to strengthen the legal profession.
- Connect with state chief justices on a wide range of topics.
