Public Policy Committee

Group of people forming an arrow

The Public Policy Committee is charged with examining topics that are of importance to DRI members and that affect the functioning of the legal system. Its subcommittees, task forces, and working groups examine policy issues of broad applicability as requested by the DRI Executive Committee and the Center’s Management Council. They generate white papers for publication, present at DRI meetings and seminars, and work with State and Local Defense Organizations (SLDOs) and Substantive Law Committees (SLCs) as they face important policy questions.
