There are more than 40 General Committees of the College. Some monitor and participate in rule-making related to judicial processes. Others focus on issues affecting the profession. Still others are concerned with College administration and the conferral of awards.
For many years, a noteworthy contribution of the College's General Committees has been papers on timely subjects affecting the profession and the administration of justice. These papers, which are confined to subjects where the College believes it can make a significant contribution, are reviewed and approved by the Board of Regents for publication and distribution.
