About the Committee

The Criminal Law Committee provides a forum for members from many countries and criminal justice systems to meet regularly, communicate, exchange views, and monitor developments in substantive and procedural criminal law. The committee focuses on developments of transnational and international significance. The interaction and cooperation within the committee keeps members informed of developments in criminal law and criminal procedures through newsletters and appointed rapporteurs.

The listings of committee members, according to location and practice area, and the ability to utilise the website to inquire about legal and representation issues, promotes the referral of cases to fellow members, mutual cooperation in transnational criminal and related cases, as well as an opportunity to exchange professional experiences and to assist other members in transnational aspects of criminal law cases.
