The Mission of CADC
CADC's mission is to improve the professional lives of appointed appellate and post-conviction counsel and to promote the fair administration of justice. In addition, CADC lobbies for our membership's interest at legislative and administrative levels.
With the resources offered in this site, CADC members can discuss legal issues with each other, access a state of the art Brief Bank containing 1780 briefs by 148 authors, and obtain news and information of interest to appellate attorneys. Over 400 appellate attorneys have now joined California Appellate Defense Counsel. Not yet a member? Join now!
Members receive a regular newsletter and monthly eNewsletter, MCLE credits for programs in appellate, criminal and dependency law, access to the member-only areas of this site, an informational guide for newer panel attorneys, and ability to apply for coverage under a special group malpractice insurance policy which is geared for attorneys who accept court appointed criminal and dependency appeals.
