ILSAPP -- NYS Office of Indigent Legal Services Criminal Appellate Listserv


English (USA)

Welcome to the New York State Office of Indigent Legal Services listserv for criminal law. More information about the New York State Office of Indigent Legal Services is available on the ILS Website. The listserv is a forum for attorneys to discuss legal issues, share insights and strategies, and inform others about hard-won victories.

The listserv is open to attorneys in New York who represent indigent clients in criminal cases, either by assignment through County Law 18-B, as a member of a public defender office, or a legal aid society. Attorneys who represent indigent defendants by accepting assignments through the 18-B panel, and who also contract with prosecutors offices, are not eligible to join the listserv.
