LACDL has an aggressive program of legislative action in the State Capitol. We retain a lobbyist, who along with the Legislative Committee, provides continuous and aggressive representation on issues of importance to the criminal defense bar. Members volunteer their time to draft position papers, to testify, and to contact legislators.
