A Message from the Section Chair

Jim Snyder

“Welcome to the webpage for the Criminal Justice Section! Our section is comprised of practitioners in all facets of criminal law – private attorneys, prosecutors, public defenders, and judicial officers. As chair of the section, I would love to see you get involved in some of our events! We offer social events, such as networking with judges and other criminal practitioners, educational opportunities, including new tracks this year for young lawyers and for our more advanced attorneys, a "Masters Track," as well as various networking events with other sections of the IndyBar. We welcome and encourage all of Indy’s criminal practitioners to come together to promote the goal of an informed and polished criminal law community!
