Council Meeting, Membership

Program Set for Los Angeles


  The  Criminal Justice Section will
begin a series of regional membership
campaigns with a one-day meeting of
California attorneys practicing crim-
inal law.
  The meeting will be May 14 at the
Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles and will
be held in conjunction with the spring
meeting of the Section's governing
Council, slated for May 14-15 at the
Biltmore.
  Metropolitan Los Angeles has over
5,000 lawyers but fewer than  200
belong to the Criminal Justice Sec-
tion, said David Melnick of Mil-
waukee,  chairman of the Section's
Membership Committee.
  Melnick said a  number  of non-
Section members who  are leaders in
the area's criminal justice system will
participate in the one-day program,
which  will focus on the potential
impact of lawyers from all segments of
the criminal justice system working
together in one organization.


  Part of the day will be spent in ob-
serving the Council deliberations, he
said. A heavy agenda faces the Coun-
cil. (See pages 6-7 for a summary of
committee reports to the Council.)
  Melnick  said that a  December
demographic study of Section mem-
bership shows that over half of all
members are under 35 and practice in
urban areas. He said a telephone poll
conducted by  his committee shows
Section membership   has declined
somewhat  over the past two years
because of a growing disinterest in
criminal justice on the part of many
lawyers.
  In action at the Midyear Meeting in
Seattle, the Section Council voted to
tighten the budget for Fiscal Year
1977-78 by limiting reimbursement to
travel expenses for Section Council
and committee members and by trim-
ming the size of the American Criminal
Law Review. The new policy goes into
effect July 1.
