The Nova Scotia Criminal Lawyers' Association

About Us...
Today, the Nova Scotia Criminal Lawyers' Association is comprised of about 100 members, including associate members from across Canada. The Association is a strong voice for criminal lawyers and everyone concerned with the quality of criminal justice, and we regularly consult with all levels of government and the judiciary on all issues relating to the legislation and administration of criminal justice in this province and in this country. The Association is governed by an executive and board of directors elected by the members.

The Nova Scotia Criminal Lawyers' Association strives to assist its members in every aspect of the practice of criminal litigation. Members are encouraged to bring to the Association's attention any and all suggestions, complaints or problems in which we may be of assistance. We also offers a confidential stress management program for the benefit of our members, and also connects younger members with seasoned criminal counsel to act as mentors. Members are assisted in locating expert witnesses through a database maintained by the Association, and transcripts and other information about police and other witnesses that defence counsel may encounter are kept available for members too.
