Arbitrator Selection Committee
The Arbitrator Selection Committee exists pursuant to Court Rule 4:21A-2(b). The Committee selects attorneys admitted to practice in New Jersey who have at least seven years of experience in any of the substantive areas of law subject to arbitration.

Chancery Practice Committee
The Chancery Practice Committee of the Morris and Sussex Bar Associations, consisting of members of the Morris or Sussex County Bar Associations, meets periodically with the Honorable Catherine M. Langlois, Presiding Judge of the Chancery Division, General Equity Part, of the Morris and Sussex vicinage to discuss issues relating to the general equity practice and procedures. The Committee strives to host a seminar at least annually on topics concerning the practice before the Chancery Division.

Civil Trial Practice Committee
The Civil Trial Practice Committee meets quarterly with the Presiding Civil Division Judge in order to discuss issues affecting the Civil Bar. The Committee consists of plaintiff and defense attorneys who handle various types of civil matters.

Condemnation Committee
The Condemnation Committee strives to coordinate the efforts of the bench, the court-appointed condemnation commissioners, and members of the bar in their administration and litigation of condemnation matters pursuant to the provisions of the Eminent Domain Act and its implementing Rules.

Criminal Practice Committee
The mission of the Criminal Practice Committee of the Morris County Bar Association is to keep the criminal bar up to date as to local criminal practice and procedure, and informed about recent developments in criminal law.

Family Law Committee
The mission of the Morris County Family Law Committee is two fold; first, to develop and maintain a high level of communication and professional rapport between the bench and bar and second, to improve the skills of lawyers and judges through educational seminars and individual counseling.

JBWS Legal Advocacy
The Battered Women's Legal Advocacy Project ("BWLAP") is a joint program of the Morris County Bar Association and the Jersey Battered Women's Service, Inc. Since its formation in 1992, the BWLAP has provided pro bono attorneys to represent victims of domestic violence in court to obtain final restraining orders against their abusers.

Lawyer Referral Service ("LRS")
The Lawyer Referral Service ("LRS") provides an important service to the public and to our members by forwarding matters to attorneys engaged in specific practice areas. LRS member attorneys are permitted to list three (3) areas in which they regularly practice, and are selected from the listings for appropriate referrals. The net result is that attorneys and clients are properly matched according to the case subject.

Municipal Law Committee
The Municipal Law Committee of the Morris County Bar Association provides opportunities for participation in discussions reviewing developments in the law affecting local government, as well as networking with other municipal law practitioners in an informal setting. A key highlight of the Committee's agenda is its annual joint meeting with the Land Use Section of the Morris County Bar where the Judge handling Prerogative Writs for Morris County addresses the committees on the state of prerogative writs in Morris County.

Minority Lawyers Committee
The Morris County Minority Lawyers Committee was formed to increase awareness of minority lawyers practicing and living in Morris County. Its purpose is to actively promote diversity and greater representation of people of color throughout the legal community.

Professionalism Committee
The Professionalism Committee consists of lawyers and judges who meet six to eight times annually to maintain a professional counseling program designed to improve the conduct of lawyers and judges through educational seminars and individual counseling. Neither the program nor the process it involves is disciplinary or punitive in nature; rather, each is intended to be rehabilitative and informal. Unlike the ethics or court systems, the Professionalism Committee is composed of lawyers and judges acting for the benefit of other lawyers and judges about whom still other lawyers and judges complain.

Securities Committee
The Securities Committee is comprised of attorneys who litigate securities claims and/or represent clients involved in the securities industry. An important purpose of the committee is to promote dialogue among the members on issues of common interest.

Solo Practice Committee
The Committee is made up of members who are in solo practice in Morris County. Members meet every other month to discuss the nuts and bolts of running one's own law practice and how best to accomplish that while giving full service to clients. Forms are shared and discussion topics include: billing practices and programs, how to keep track of your billable time, allocating expenses to files, fee related issues and ethics issues. Via e-mail, members also have access to each other concerning legal issues. An informal referral network is up and running.

Members meet every other month to discuss the nuts and bolts of running one's own law practice and how best to accomplish that while giving full service to clients.

Workers' Compensation Committee
The Workers' Compensation Committee sponsors seminars and meets informally to discuss current issues of interest to the workers' compensation bar.

Young Lawyers Committee
The Young Lawyers Committee works to provide those Morris County attorneys practicing for five years or less with the following opportunities: - Networking Opportunities for business development; - Educational Programs to enhance professional development and practical skills; - Leadership Opportunities through the various Bar Association committees and projects; - Social Programs to connect with other practicing lawyers in this terrific community; and - Exposure to rewarding Pro Bono and other charitable programs through which you may offer legal assistance to the disadvantaged and marginalized.
