This is the deadline for submission of legislation to the Jurisprudence and Law Reform Committee. All proposals must be submitted to Jay Robbins at email@example.com in bill format no later than January 31, 2022.
The Board of Trustees considers the report from the Jurisprudence and Law Reform Committee, and acts upon the recommendation. Up to 10 bills may be selected for Association sponsorship.
One of the most important things the Arkansas Bar Association does each year is represent its members at the Arkansas Capitol during the legislative session. The Association speaks with a unified voice to best represent the interests of the legal community and the profession of law.
Legislative or administrative proposals concerning all matters of jurisprudence and procedure, including reforms of the substantive law and improvement in practice and in administration of the courts, originate with Association members, sections and committees. If proposals are recommended by the Jurisprudence and Law Reform Committee and adopted by the Board of Trustees, they become part of the Association’s Legislative Package.
Deadlines have been established by the Arkansas Bar Association to facilitate consideration and inclusion for the ArkBar’s Legislative Package, and thereby sponsored by the Association. For the 2023 legislative session of the Arkansas General Assembly those deadlines are above.
Please consider becoming a supporting member of the nonpartisan political action committee. The Arkansas Bar PAC is your opportunity to be the change you wish to see. Becoming politically involved is the best way to ensure your voice is heard and that you are part of the solution.
