In the 2014 rules cycle the Committee focused on the restyling of the local criminal rules, updating the rules applicable to members of the bar, and converting pilot programs to local rules.

All members of the bar and the public are advised that the Advisory Committee will conduct a community forum at the Alfred A.

The Advisory Committee looks forward to providing an opportunity at the forum to answer inquiries about the recent rule revisions.
