The OCDLA Legislative Committee works with our legislative representative to draft and promote legislation beneficial to the criminal justice system and to protect the constitutional and statutory rights of those accused of crime.
The committee opposes legislation that would erode an individual’s constitutional rights and legislation that creates penalties that fall unequally upon those subjected to them.
The committee also works to secure adequate funding for the public defense function and to raise the quality of both juvenile and adult representation.
