Welcome to the Criminal Law Section 2018!

I have the privilege to serve as your new Chair this year. As an longtime FBA member, both at the national and the local chapter level, I know first hand how the FBA is uniquely situated to represent all federal practitioners, and to support the federal judiciary. And as a former federal prosecutor and a once and again criminal defense attorney, I have seen the value that the Criminal Law Section can add to our practices. I am honored to represent your interests in this Section and look forward to providing you with information about upcoming CLE events, Criminal Law Section publications, and member benefits that I hope you find helpful in your practice.

Please look for our quarterly newsletter, which will provide circuit updates as well as timely articles about Criminal Law & Procedure. If you are interested in publishing an article in our newsletter, just reach out to me. We encourage active participation by all Section members!

You will also see the Criminal Law Section collaborating with the local FBA chapters to cosponsor CLEs and other events in your district. If you are planning an event that you would like the Section to cosponsor, please reach out!

We are also in the process of establishing a social media presence that will allow Section members around the country to communicate with each other. One of the ways we believe the Section can add value to your daily practice is to provide a forum for asking subject-related questions, drawing on the vast experience of our members for guidance on substantive issues, providing and soliciting referrals, identifying experts, and learning about judges in other districts.

Our Section benefits when our members participate in Section activities. Please email with any comments and feedback to enable us to better serve the Section. I look forward to hearing from you.
