The Committee on Legislative and Judicial Initiatives
Committee on State Court Counsel
The purpose of the Committee on State Court Counsel is to provide support for attorneys who work within the state courts, and improve communication between the commercial bar and those attorneys within the court system. The Committee develops and promotes legal education programs that deal specifically with commercial issues. Since the inception of the Commercial Division Law Clerkship Program, the Committee has also taken an active role with the Commercial Division Law Clerks, focusing on being a resource for them both in terms of professional assistance during their clerkships, and in their post-clerkship employment efforts. The Committee also solicits suggestions from both the bench and the bar on ways in which attorneys in the court system can better serve the legal community.
