Associate Members

CACJ welcomes professionals whose work involves criminal defense or who are aligned with defense issues, as well as law students and individuals who share our philosophy and goals as “Friends”. Membership is a great way to keep up-to-date with legislation, litigation and the politics behind defense of the accused and protection of our civil rights.

Associate members are for criminal justice professionals who support the goals of CACJ but do not fall into the other categories of membership; such as paralegals and law clerks. This also includes our affiliates and service providers.

As a member of our NLD group, the law student is provided an excellent vehicle to transition from law school to practice by creating a network of professionals with a common vision promoting criminal justice at all stages.

Friends of CACJ are those individuals who have been personally affected the by the criminal justice system and who support CACJ’s in its efforts to maintain a fair criminal justice system in our state.
